While Microdisney were a little before my time and Cathal Coughlan and his Fatima Mansions were just too aggressive to be palatable there is no doubting the beauty of ‘Town To Town’. Must have been his Coughlan’s mate Sean O’Hagan’s (Stereolab and his own High Llamas) west coast leanings that supplied a bona fide chorus to sing along to. That and a video that was made for tuppence meant that it could only have been come out of 2 lads from emigration ravaged 1980’s Ireland (Cork to be precise). And despite the sucrose melody the theme of the tune revolved around a nuclear war, something to think about as you sing along on your dozen rerun this evening. KD
