Steve Averill and Pete Holidai are the survivors of the Ghostown. But here the iconic pair of Irish rockers are not just surviving, they’re positively thriving. The reason for this must be due to the strength of their collaborators, their fellow Trouble Pilgrims. In fact, Trouble Pilgrims now are almost an Irish post-punk supergroup … Bren Lynott was a member of The End and The Cathedral. Johnny Bonnie was in Those Handsome Devils, The Baby Snakes while Tony St Ledger was in the Myster Men, The Deep and Vatikan3 … Dark Shadows and Rust is a very Dublin album, it also celebrates the dust and grit, the sweat and blood, the tension and release of the blues, from the Delta to Canvey Island. It wears the ghost-shirts of glam of Bolan and Bowie and Roxy and the candyfloss pop of Everly Brothers and Roy Orbison… It’s not just one of the greatest albums of Irish rock, it’s a milestone.
Album of the year… by a mile, a dirty, exciting city mile.
