Been away a long time
Almost 2OOO years
I’ve been away a long time
I’ve drunk a lot of beer
Jesus back on the street again,oh no
Jesus back on his feet again,oh no
The Sultans of Ping – Back in a Tracksuit (1993)
Playing the Main Stage at Mantua on Saturday (8.15pm), the band with the second best Irish song of all time (as voted for by listeners to the Ian Dempsey show on Today FM in 2004. No doubt, number 1 was U2) reformed in 2005 for some gigs and they didn’t break up and so have a number of gigs lined up over the year (including a soldout show with Carter USM in London!).
The gig will be a nostalgia-fest I’m sure so to honour the accolade bestowed on them by Ian Dempsey and co, I present to you the second best Irish song of all time “Where’s me Jumper”…. plus a song about Jesus in a trackie. Both are from their first album Casual Sex in the Cineplex from 1993.
