Leodhasachising Popular Music Since 1979...
A' ghiadh mhor!! The Outer Hebrides' top exponents of Avante Gaelic Obscurist Folk Rock have created a new wepsite to replace their defunct one at groups.msn.com. And here it is.
Here's the places you can go from this page:
|AGOFR but not the Guireans||THE GUIREANS||not AGOFR at all at all|
Obviously, the Guireans are the original and purest artistes in the genre of Avante Gaelic Obscurist Folk Rock (AGOFR).
Some lesser practitioners of the genre have their websites listed below:
aka "Lechends of AGOFR 30th Anniversary Tour"
Find out more about the mysterious Ewetube sensations from Sounds in the Grounds 2009
Overproduced pomp-AGOFR rooted in 70s prog virtuosity and verging dangerously close to "proper" music.
Early-80s Matheson Road AGOFR dilettantes and townie rivals to the Guireans
This completely untrue series of articles about the Outer Hebrides' capital could be termed Avante Gaelic Obscurist Folk History
Go to the Library and find out everything you never wanted to know about the Guireans and their place in Avante Gaelic Obscurist Folk Rock mythology.
Hosted within a high-end supercomputer simulation of a dilapidated portakabin on Keith Street, the Library includes the band bio/tapeography, live appearances, links, old news - all the stuff that used to be on the old Guireans msn groups site
Now if only we could get rid of the virtual old bleigeards who come in every day and lurk in the reference section...
For the less historical stuff - live and current Guireans blogs, comments etc.
