Martin’s track of the week this week was a German track from 1972 – Ton Steine Scherben and their track Die Letze Schlact gewinnen wir.  Check out why here

Ronan’s track of the week was. Check out why here.

We had two library requests this week. The first was for our colleague Catherine Sanborn who retired last week after years as head of UCC Library IT. Her chosen track was, the quite appropriately titled, and simply beautiful,  Ne me quitte pas by Jacques Brel. Our second request was for our new colleague Rosemarie Higgins who has recently joined our cataloguing team. Her chosen track was equally appropriate – Welcome to the Jungle by Guns N’ Roses


Ronan’s Track of the Week (04 September 2017)

My Track of the Week this week is ‘Mourning Sound’, the second single release from Grizzly Bear’s brand new album ‘Painted Ruins’. From Brooklyn, New York, this is the band’s 5th album, the first in 5 years, and their first release on the RCA label. I’ve been a fan of this band for a while, but was surprised to note that its been that long since the previous album, ‘Shields’. Where does time go… During the hiatus the band members explored other pursuits outside of music, and clearly this space seems to have allowed the band to grow.  Reviews of the album have been good. The band are about to go on tour, and the first date happens to be at Vicar Street, Dublin on October 5th



Our first show back on air after the month of August off. Nice to be back I must say.

And my track of the week is a relatively new track to me. A track I first heard last month on a German TV show on Netflix. The show was The Same Sky. I do recommend checking it out.

In one of the early episodes there was this snippet of what to me sounded like a punk / new wave track. But the show was set in 1974, a few years before punk, so I thought it was an anachronism and I was very curious as to what the track was.

Called on Shazam and was informed that that the track was called Die Letze Schlact gewinnen wer by the left leaning political German band Ton Steine Scherben And the track was taken from their 1972 album Keine Macht fur Niemand.

I Don’t like all the stuff, or even much of the stuff, on the album, or much on their other albums, but this track, for me, fits in with, and holds it own with, any of the classic punk and new wave tracks of the late seventies. Even if it was released four or five years before punk even existed. Now, stopping the chatter up and recommending you listen to …
