Almost a year ago, I digitised and brought to the web for the first time (via this post) some old photos and demo tape recordings from Choice, an early 80s, post punk, electronic group from Dundalk.
Cultural producer, DJ and event programmer Darren McCreesh read the post and really liked the demos.
Long story short; one of the Choice tracks from 31 years ago will now appear on Darren’s forthcoming “Strange Passion” compilation album in July via the Finders Keepers label!! What do you make of that, Engelbert?
