John Shelly And The Creatures – Long May You Reign

If you live in Ireland you’ll know this song once you don’t regularly fast forward through the ads. Over the last few years it has probably done more for domestic tourism than the Giant’s Causeway and isn’t it refreshing to see the tourist board’s up north and down here using local talent to highlight our precious natural environment (that Heathers tune could do a few more perilous cliff walks mind you). ‘Long May You Reign’ will probably have been the height of John Shelley and the Creatures success though given that they have recently changed their name to Master & Dog. The new name has the capability to confuse (the way I still eat Marathon’s and clean with Jif) rather than attract newbies especially given that the Belfast lads only released their debut ‘Dinosaur’ late last year (on iTunes it goes with the former name). To get your over the hump there are tracks using both monikers below. Each is well worth it with a nice cool pint of Bulmers (in an event sponsored by Magners). KD
