Until fairly recently, I’d not heard of the Split Squad.
But, when I’d heard that Clem Burke was their drummer, and they had a gig around the corner in the Central Bar, I bought a couple of tickets right away.
In the days leading up to the gig, I played their stuff in the bar. Some of it sounded a little dated at first, like US indie music from the early 90s. But it really grew on me.
The band were genuinely good too, it was a great gig.
And Clem Burke was a lovely guy.
