Who says he’s not a band?
I only met Sean A. McDermott a couple of times, and that was when I drinking in the Underground bar on Dame Street. (That was around 1989-92, and it was in the Underground that I saw Packie Bonner make THAT save. Wipe tear from eye. Sigh!) Anyway, Sean A. McDermott never used to talk that much, and I only found out why later on. It was because he was usually so shitfaced that he just couldn’t physically speak. Still, the man was the closest thing we had to a Svengali - well, it was Ireland in the 1980s - and so when I came across this video for one of his various musical projects, a band called $1,000 Wedding, I just had to put it up here as part of the series. Am I right in saying that’s Eileen Gogan, formerly of the Would Be’s, in backing vocals? The video contains footage of some of the lads from Hey Paulette and Feargal is the Applejack. Enjoy.
