Radiators From Space


Keeping with the seventies sound of the previous post, here's the 2nd single from Radiators From Space. Often billed as the first punk band in Ireland, they feature future Pogue Philip Chevron. The first 2 7"s and the LP TV Tube Heart are pretty rockin'. Later they would drop the "from space" part of their name and supposedly get overproduced, but I've never heard their later material so I can't comment. Here's a pretty complete history and discography for your browsing pleasure. TV Tube Heart has been recently reissued, but I believe it's only available as an import (???).
From 1977, The Enemies 7"-

Thanks for posting the Radiators tracks. I have been waiting to hear them for a while. Phil and Terry Woods performed at a pub here. (Moncton, NB, Canada). The Mahones brought them down. (canada's version of Blood and Whiskey, great band) Lots could be written about them. While listening to the Mahones sipping on my beer Phil came up and started asking about the band. I didn't recognize him at all, just an older guy checking out a great line up.

I have a double CD of Chiswick records and the stuff you have posted shows that Radiators From Space were a lot more raw, rock'n'roll, bluesy, garage feel about it. They did'nt keep this up for long as a year later ('78)they changed to just The Radiators and went a lot more poppy.
