Mrs CC's Irish Roots were showing on holidays as she purchased albums by Hothouse Flowers and the Saw Doctors two bands from her homeland.
Hothouse Flowers flirted at the margins of the charts in Britain with this song from their 1988 debut album People their biggest hit (peaking at number 11) and the only song of theirs that I can remember.
The Saw Doctors never quite reached these dizzy heights - this is a track from their 1996 album Same Oul' Town.
Needless to say both bands enjoyed considerably more success back in Ireland with the Saw Doctors in particular enjoying 3 number ones.
I can take or leave both bands to be honest -they don't annoy me intensely nor do they make me want to rush out and purchase more of their stuff.
