- I'm gonna see Mark Eitzel in Galway tonight. Weird coincidence, I'd
just mentioned him on another chatlist as a Nick Drake soundalike.
Went downtown to check out the remaindered/2nd hand bookshop , then

In the vwindow of this was a poster for a gig tonight by Mark.
Lucky that I saw it cos it hasn't been otherwise advertised outside
of flyers on the counter of the cd shop.
He's being supported by the local krautrock crew CAne 141.
I also just picked up the first Clannad lp cos I heard it was
supposed to be pretty haunting. I like early Steeleye Span for that
It is pretty dashed nice, acoustic Gaelic folky stuff from 73 plus a
nearly unrecogniseable cover of Morning Dew.
I don't know the musical area too well so I'm wundrin what else from
Ireland in the early 70s is as good
