I thought it might be interesting to show some of the artwork from Songs for a Fallen Angel.
The original photos were taken in 1999 by Ronan O'Sullivan and my father Andrew. As the latter wryly asked when he saw the finished album "Why not call it the album of the walking man?". I spotted a trio of teenagers being photographed by a crew of black clad photographers in the rain on the Millennium Bridge in Dublin recently. They were wet and abjectly miserable. One of them was holding an electric guitar which was dripping all over his jeans. The photographer was yelling "just one more lads!'. They were there when I returned thirty minutes later. No such tomfoolery with me. I just donned my leather coat and wandered off around the city like Kung Fu, solving crimes and helping people.
The reissue of the album in 2008 consisted of photos that had a lot of meaning for me. Some of them were taken by friends. The rest were from the tour of the USA in 2007 with Anúna, Glendalough in Co. Wicklow, Loop Head in Co. Clare and in the snug in Doheny and Nesbitt's pub on Baggot Street.
