An interesting article here in the Age. Interesting to compare with the U2 model for world domination.

Thanks for the link. Cool article.

A little too much beard for me though....



(reminds me I still have to do that journal entry on good beards and bad beards... )

Oh no, Liam is quite groomed and beardless these days!

Yes, get cracking Indra, I can't wait to read what criteria you use to judge good and bad beardness

That's good, 'cause that beard kind of overwhelmed him.

I have some amazing photos to use too.

Thanks for the article. Would love to see Hothouse Flowers live. I have an old VHS tape of one of their shows from somewhere.

does my heart good to see all of the chatter about the Flowers..
I am their US A&R rep/label.. and started this thread

if you are in the mood for news, I can share some info/insight.

I would highly rec'd checking out Liam's first solo record if you haven't aleady. It's a traditional Celtic record, on his own label.. you can sample it on ITunes or Rhapsody.. its called Rian

http://www.liam-o-maonlai.com/

Flowers are going to tour some in the US in the fall and maybe a release of some sorts to coincide.. keep watching their website http://www.hothouseflowers.com or their US DIstribution http://www.redeyeusa.com which is the same as their label http://www.eleventhirtyrecords.com for news.

While I am on the subject of my label, feel free to surf the site and you may find other U2 related artists.. I signed Maria McKee (former Lone Justice) to a deal, we released "Peddlin' Dreams" last year.. you can sample a track on our site or also on ITunes or Rhapsody, etc.

And we're about to announce the release of the new Alarm record on Eleven Thirty. It hits stores June 13th. It's the best record Mike has done since Strength, cannot rec'd it enough. I haven't posted it on the site yet, but it will be up soon. If you wanna check out samples go to their main website which is: http://www.thealarm.com

you can sample the single at: http://www.thealarm.com/underattack/videos.asp

the record will be a double disc, with the second disc having a video for every single song on the record... and a documentary of the making of all of the videos, which is not on the UK released version. All 13 videos were made in 13 days, co-produced by Mike Peters and his production company that he is partners with. Quite amazing. To add more to this story, back in December (wo months after finishing the recording of this record and videos) Mike was diagnosed with Leukemia.

http://www.billboard.com/bbcom/news/..._id=1001738242

good news is, Mike is doing extremely well, had several battles with chemo, with no side effects and is stronger than ever. Two brilliant shows at SXSW with some more US shows upcoming around the release date (NYC and LA).

the eerie thing is to listen to the songs on the new record, ironically entitled "Under Attack" and you can sample the tunes on the site.. "Without a FIght" was written having no idea he was sick..

finally, for Flowers fans, a little gem you will love, go to this site to see Liam jamming with Mike Scott and the Waterboys:

So its the last day of 2006 and I'm just looking back at the year that was. Probably one of my most memorable moments was seeing the Hothouse Flowers in March. It was a blessing in disguise for me - not only did it help me with dealing with the shock of U2 cancelling their original tour dates but it also reintroduced me to the HHF again.

To be honest I had not seen the band since the 90's, had not listened to their music in years, i did not even realise they were still making music and that they were now down to only three original band members (that took me three songs to work that out - age plays cruel tricks on you).

Anyhow it was an amazing show, they performed their 'hits' but with a new twist and gave us some fantastic new songs too. More than anything - it gave me one of my most favourite moments at a live show .... Liam singing "Feels like living" which to date still leaves me speechless to put into words.

Thanks for posting!

I really wish that Hothouse would extend their tours to more countries than just Ireland, England and the USA... ...it's been, what, at least 5 or 6 years (or even more?) since I saw them live here!

Well, thanks for sharing your story - maybe the new year will bring a Hothouse-concert to my part of the world, who knows?

In a year of great concert highlights and memories, the Flowers still gladden my heart. Seeing Liam on Rockwiz the other week was a welcome reminder too

Hey everyone, cool to see this thread coming back with some chatter. Thought I would share some cool new music news related to the Hothouse Flowers

currently, Fiachna (Guitarist) and Dave (drummer) have a new rock band with Cait O'Roirdan (Pogues bassist, former wife of Elvis Costello) called "Prenup"
(because all three are semi-recent divorcees)

the band just finished recording their first CD, should be released in the Spring of 2007.. they are planning a tour around March.. and have a myspace page set up with some tunes. Fiachna writes and sings, sounding better than ever!

here's the link, highly recommend checking it out:
http://www.myspace.com/prenuprock

Happy New Year!

These guys were at the first concert I ever went to. It was called Planet Party and the headliner was Midnight Oil. They Might Be Giants and Matthew Sweet also played.

Great show.
