The Fat Lady Sings – Arclight

I often wonder how people from outside Ireland view the songs that we hold dear. ‘Arclight’ is certainly one of them, a tune that is recognisable to every Irish ear that has come into contact with a radio. Produced 19 years ago it needed a re-release in 1991 to find its audience. Right from the off the stark piano keys will suck you in and even if they don’t Nick Kelly’s emotive vocals have the wherewithal to stop you from wriggling free. ‘Arclight’ was included on the Fat Lady Sings debut album ‘Twist’, which appeared like a revelation in the pop starved home produced market of 1991. The Fat Lady Sings it seemed were going places and even signed a major deal with Atlantic Records. Sadly it wasn’t to be and Kelly left the band soon after their second album ‘Johnson’ came out in 1993. He has since carved out a moderately successful solo career. KD
