The Floors – Love Song To My Guru


You can’t keep a good man down. Despite making 4 brilliant albums with the Floors the Carlow based artist Dave Donohue was not content to sit back and bask in the critical acclaim bestowed on his music. Instead he went beyond his comfort zone and into the arms of Hollywood! Well, sorta, Donohue has supervised the music on 2 well known Irish made films In America and Once. Not only that but he has brought out a series of children’s books and is currently putting the finishing touches to a movie script. But, less about his outside interests and more about the audio so ‘Love Song To My Guru’ should be a nice introduction to the Floors, truly one of Ireland’s lost bands. ‘Superbe’ may have been the album that almost catapulted them to fame but there is so much in their back catalogue that is worthy of inspection. This one is taken from ‘Morphine Watch’, an album that was inspired by a bizarre incident that occurred to Donohue while in hospital surgery (hey Jason Pierce, stop stealing other people’s ideas). Thankfully it all ended happily and gloriously languid songs (rather than important intestines) such as ‘Love Song To My Guru’ continue to spill from the Leinster bard. KD
