This Weekend I’ll Mostly Be Listening to… The Brilliant Trees January 15, 2022

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

A Dublin (Finglas) band, The Brilliant Trees were formed in the late 80’s and released a number of albums before breaking up for a while in the early 2000’s. They reformed for a while circa 2007 before getting going again in 2016. I remember seeing them in The Olympia in the 90’s. They kind of remind me of The Trash Can Sinatras. They are excellent. So hopefully we’ll see a few gigs from them when we can actually go to them.

Never saw them live but always heard good reports.

I’ve said it here before – but sure that won’t stop me repeating myself, now that I’ve got to the age where it’s expected – it’s known in our house that when they ever get mentioned that I’ll say “best band in the world, ever – FACT!
Have to admit to being a bit of a groupie, can’t count the amount of times I saw them and the different venues, some now gone but I loved them. They were my band even if I’m engaging in hyperbole with my comment above.
Also remember previous incarnations – one in particular I can still remember – The Droplet catchers.
And again as mentioned before a tenuous link to some on this site is that at least one of them was in the IDYM.
