shows off his favourite Web Site and new T-Shirt...
you nervous about going back on the road in Ireland?
"I'm nervous about it as I'm always nervous about
playing here. It's the home team and you know the
album did well here and got good reviews. The gigs
have sold well so I guess I'm surprised and pleased."
you looking forward to playing live?
live if the thing I love doing best. This is a million
miles ahead of anything else I do and is also the
thing I think I am the best at."
do you play this time around?
are half a dozen shows starting in Waterford, then
Wexford, Cork, Limerick, Dublin and Belfast. We wanted
to do Galway but there was not a place for us to do.
What I really want to do is theatres. I've got this
in my head and that's why Vicar Street is perfect.
It is intimate and the record that I have out now
is intensively personal and I can't imagine people
listening to it. I feel it's actually just for me.
I need that one degree of separation you get in a
theatre but I need that."
went on, "there
is a small thing between you and them and these songs
are not really performed. If you listen to the record
sometimes I'm barely singing. We need to be internalized
they are very subjective and they will become objective."
How does it feel listening to something so personal?
"Every time I sing them or hear them it is what is
conjured up inside of me again and that is not very
pleasant. So I need to go inside myself again."
You are 50 now how does it feel?
do think I feel it but you don't think you are cause
at a certain time you are no age but you don't think
you are anything. You feel the life you have lived.
I feel that. It's been a long fifty years."
did you play a tour like this last?
long time ago but not really since the Rats. This
is the most important tour in Ireland since the Rats
because I've built up a body of songs, since we split,
as a solo artist. I've made more albums solo then
we did with the Rats. Bizarrely, they have got better
reviews then the Rats did. So expect the crowd for
these shows will come from people who have liked this
and the last three records but I will also be doing
some Rats songs if I can remember them all."
