David Ireland –Shoot The Family Man
David Ireland –Shoot The Family Man/ Coming Up Strong –Sovereign SOV 120 (1973 UK)
I couldn’t find much about David Ireland. He had at least two singles released in Holland, including this one that also garnered a UK release. The producer is Richard Pulin who was involved as producer/arranger with Pink Elephant in the early 70s. Both songs are strong acoustic based rockers, somewhere between John Kongos and Dave Edmunds with a little T. Rex thrown in for good measure. Simple, understated and waiting to be discovered...
