NoLand Folk – new MP3 on myspace

Sue, one of our quieter correspondents, has a band, called NoLand Folk. And would ya credit it, but they have a myspace account, and an mp3 of one of their songs The Other Way Round. Based in the wilds of Co. Clare, Sue, Paddy and the gang are hitting Oslo in the coming weeks. You have been warned.
From their profile:

We are all adrift in the Wild West of Ireland. Sue has given up her very important position of ‘Master of Tea Ceremonies’ with the ‘Tea and cake Appreciation Society’ to channel lost spirits through her singing… Paddy writes masterpiece songs and sings when not being chased by tribes on ‘yet to be discovered’ islands and affecting a limp…. Billy the mad scientist may have found a cure, but he doesn’t want to share. For now the soothing sounds of his cello playing will have to do folks… The Amazing Aland Assiri we found wandering dazed on Lahinch beach one afternoon, and after some fortifying hot ports realized his violin playing was actually rather quite good and now he has become one of us too…. Until recently Erin was haunting the Cliffs of Moher with a large stick and a ram. Unfortunately progress halted her career with the opening of the interpretaive centre. Happily we re-habilitated her and with the aid of her wonderful viola playing, she is learning to re-adjust.
