This Weekend I’ll Mostly Be Listening to… A House “I Am The Greatest” June 29, 2019

Posted by irishelectionliterature in This Weekend I'll Mostly Be Listening to....

Off to The National Concert Hall Tonight to see the David Couse, Fergal Bubury and friends show “A House is Dead – I am Still The Greatest” where they will “re-interpret the seminal 1991 album for 2019.
Saw them umpteen times, have all the albums, some singles, 12 inches …… So am really looking forward to this.
“I Am the Greatest” is such a brilliant album. Starting with “I don’t care” and not a poor song in between , ending with “I am the Greatest” and it’s end of “I Am ,I Am, I Am, I Am, I Am, I Am, I Am, I Am, I Am …….” and I can already feel those multiple “I Am” going through the Concert Hall as the show ends.
Twenty Eight years ago and it was a staple on the record player…. indeed another album I had on vinyl that I bought later as a CD, knowing each and every word of every song, the guitar lines… A great album

It’s odd, I do love A House, but I kind of stopped listening to them around this time. THere’s some great stuff on the album but I never locked back into them after this. Hope the night is fantastic. I’m really liking the way groups are coming back and reinterpreting albums from that period (and even earlier – as with Microdisney).

They were excellent. Played the album and then an encore of No more apologies, the Comedy is over, Call me Blue and I want too much.
Hopefully they’ll be doing it again at some stage.
