Turner And Kirwan Of Wexford

Absolutely And Completely
Sealed, Obscure 1977 Textured Cover Original From The Irish Rockers Larry Kirwan & Pierce Turner. “This Debut Album From 1977 Seems To Find The Duo At A Crossroads, With A Mix Of Progressive Rock And New Wave Pop. Lengthy Tracks Like The Title Suite Betrayed Their Prog Leanings With Titles Such As “Frodo’s Theme,” But The Duo Transformed Ewan MacColl’s Simple ‘60s Folk Ballad “Travellin’ People” Into A Full-Blown Epic By Adding Their Own Passage Featuring Heavy Rock Drumming And Layers Of Pierce Turner’s Prog Synthesizer. “Father ‘Reilly Says Goodbye” - The Mourneful Tale Of A Lonely And Depressed Priest - Also Features Some Spine-Tingling Keyboard Playing From Turner, Who Is The Stand-Out Musician On The Albu. Others In The Band Included Scott Spray (Bass), Emil Guadagno (Lead Guitar) And Scott Bailey (Drums). The Much Shorter And Punchier “Warts ‘N All” And “The Girl Next Door” – In Which The Singer Tries To Comprehend Why His Girlfriend Has Left Him For Another Woman – Were In Sharp Contrast To The Other Songs, But Somehow It Works.” Rock Roots Archive.
