- Tim Lyons & Fintan Vallely - Big Guns and Hairy Drums
Tim Lyons and Fintan Vallely got together originally at the suggestion of Derry singer Joe Mulhearn for a Scottish club tour organised by Rita Hunter in 1986. Their material was built around Tim's traditional ballads and Fintan's flute music. But gradually Tim brought his accordion to the fore, and Fintan began singing out several songs he had made earlier in the decade. So began Scithereedee, and eventually the demands of festivals pushed them both more toward song, with music as a kind of leavening. Several of the songs on this album appeared first on a tour cassette called Scithereedee in 1988, later re-issued with some changes as Knock, Knock, Knock in 1989. Here the original music tracks have been sacrificed to fit in several other songs that the duo have been exercising on tours in England and Ireland throughout the 1990s.
