On a recent trip to Ireland, Dennis brought back tons of music (what a surprise) highly recommended by record shop clerks all over the country. One in Galway said he had to get The Thrills (He worked at Red Records for those of you who collect that kind of trivia.)
The Thrills are a band from Dublin who were already huge there and in England – having been "discovered" by Morrissey, and opening for him at Royal Albert Hall - all at the tender age of 23! Dennis proceeded to play "One Horse Town" on the very first show after he returned. Turns out, that it was truly a first, since the CD was finally released in the U.S. the day before they came to KUSF for an interview. As they say in Ireland it was "Good Craic" for all concerned!
DTM: Tell me the story about Morrissey.
The Thrills: [Alan, the producer] just sat down and said ”The great man wants to come and see my boys”.
