Almost forgot today was St. Patty's Day. Noticed a lot of Irish related posts today so I thought, better jump on the band wagon like a jackass, right? So here's one from way back in 1979. This is probably my favorite SLF 7'' (next to Alternative Ulster of course) The title track ain't anything spectacular, but it's the b-side that's the true gem here. Bloody Sunday is an amazing song. Great music, great lyrics, & great energy. Just wish it had a proper ending (can't be too greedy, right?) It pertains to the infamous Bloody Sunday which occurred in Derry, Northern Ireland 1972, where 27 civilians were shot dead by the British Parachute Regiment during a civil rights protest. Sad day. So you all just sit back, enjoy a pint of Murphy's (cause Guiness here in the U.S. is just watered down piss), & be thankful for what you have. Enjoy!
