THE CLOCK COMES DOWN THE STAIRS
This re-issue – made in conjunction with the band - contains rare single B-sides & the complete Peel session recorded at the time, serving as a great re-introduction to this finest of Irish bands.
It was never an easy equation for Microdisney to balance - the musical prettiness of Sean O'Hagan & the lyrical savagery of Cathal Coughlan - but it all adds up here rather wondrously. 'The Clock Comes down the Stairs' seems to be Coughlan meticulously chronicling his own decline. As is invariably the case with Coughlan, however, the decline of everyone and everything else also gets a mention.
