Intricate arrangements, skillful lyric writing, and as we have come to expect from THE 4 OF US, the songs are imbued with considerable melodic flair.

The story behind the photo.

It was Sunday August 2nd 1992 and we were backstage at the Trip To Tipp festival at Semple Stadium.

Around 30,000 music lovers were on the pitch and in the stands, torrential rain pouring down on most of them.

We watched as one man and his guitar walked up the runway to greet the drenched crowd. I remember feeling sorry for him, having to perform in that downpour.

I needn't have worried. By the time he'd reached the first chorus of Lisdoonvarna, Christy Moore had everyone on the pitch singing along at the top of their voices. Now, instead of feeling sorry for him I started to worry for us having the unenviable task of following him.

The rain was still bucketing down on a sea of dripping wet souls when we came on. I saw two full bottles of ice cold Evian water our manager had placed by the drum kit and - in an impulsive gesture of solidarity - decided to pour the entire contents over my head.

The roadies and crew looked on in disbelief. Who was I trying to electrocute? Myself, the band ...or them? I'd also turned the stage floor into an ice rink. As a result, Extreme - the American rock band on after us - ended up slipping and sliding their way through their 50 minute slot.

Some of the technical crew working that day still haven't forgiven me.

I blame Christy.

P.S. We are giving away a signed copy of our red vinyl Sugar Island LP plus some exclusive surprise goodies.
