Calling on all Irish Hue & Cry Fans,

I am currently starting a campaign to all Dublin radio stations to start to play tracks from the new Hue & Cry album ( Open Soul ). At this moment in time Tony Fenton from Today FM has promised to play tracks from the bands current album soon. Please keep the pressure up on all your radio stations as without us listeners they are nothing.

My favourite Hue & Cry Tunes.

Posted on January 26, 2009 at 1:30 10 Comments

Hi all,

I have been a Hue & Cry fan for now approaching 22 years, when i first heard Labour of Love on Wogan in July 1987. I have the majority of albums ( the early ones on tape and Vinyl, now converted to disc ). My favourite tunes would have to be " Strength to Strength " from Seduced and Abanded. On first listening to this tune it just blows you away with the brilliant bass and brass section.

My next would be " Shipbuilding ", the passion and strength of Pat`s vocals in this… Continue

It was great wk end. Caught up with crowd from here that I met last yr plus met pile more and we went on the lash.  Fri night gig was very special, was very intimate and emotional with all my favourite songs and and a few unexpected tunes and all the new stuff was great. Sat was great with all funky stuff, highlights were Labour of Love, cause it's always fantastic live, and Strength to Strength cause wasnt expecting it. Also, both nights they did new song that isn't on new CD but on iTunes but both times Pat introduced it he either didn't name it or I missed it, but I think it's called Hard Wire, that's my favourite. I recorded it on my phone and have been playing it since. I only got the CD at the gig so need to give the rest of it a proper listen. I've their last 3 CDs signed now.

In Dublin I just saw them in 2000 in Vicar St and then Whelan's in 2009 - that was an amazing gig with the full band in the small venue, it really worked for me. Then the last 2 years in glasgow. Which other gigs in Dublin were you at?

You're BACK!!!

Listen, I was getting worried about you! Thought you'd switched allegiance to the Lady Gaga site or something...(not a hope!). Good to have you back. Hope you've been catching up on all that's been happening in the last few months. Hope you and the family are well - will catch up soon.

Welcome back - don't leave it TOO long next time...

Groovin' mate - well done!

Good to see you're enjoying the night after such a long wait. Here's to the next time, eh? Hope you're well.

Keith, I'm delighted you've enjoyed it all so far. Thanks again for the boost - you'll have me famous yet! Check your page (this one) and at the right hand side at the top, under your name it says, 'Inbox', 'Alerts', 'Friends' etc - go into 'friends' and accept me as a friend - it's been there for a while.

Once again, I appreciate your drive and determination to get H&C music booming throughout Ireland. The guys should sign you up as an ambassador for good music! Well done and good luck to you.

Ah, Fame at last Keith! Cheers for the mention. Glad to hear you enjoyed it. Wish I could have been there - the atmosphere would have been great. How did the family enjoy it? Is your sister converted?

Thanks for the reply.

Counting down the hours?

Just a wee note to say 'enjoy yourselves' (as if you need me to tell you that!) for the gig tonight. Let us know how it goes,

All the best,
