THEY HAVE IT ALL.
THEY HAVE IT ALL.
For a second I thought this thread was about Crystal Castles, and I was going to regulate accordingly.
If anything, this should put Crystal Castles into perspective.
I legitimately cannot figure out if they're in on the joke or not.
Also, her name is Dervla.
Indeed. The Irish spelling is Dearbhla, but, like Diarmuid, real people can't spell or say it correctly.
I love that the guy has somehow accidentally stumbled over David Byrne's old stage suit.
My heart skips a beat every time I hear the name of my true love . . . Dervla.
And their smiles could irradiate a rather large European village in nanoseconds.
Sounds like a car part doesn't it? Oh, the Dervla's loose, that's yer problem right there.
I went to school with a Dearbhla, as it happens, her dad was my old religion teacher so naturally she was an insanely reckless nymphomaniacal pill hound. Nice girl, but fucking mental.
It's all a marvellous package, but I think the introduction is particularly terrific.
This band might end up playing at Alternative Miss Ireland, which would be awesome.
So... I was speaking to Mary from Crystal Swing the other day because I want them to do the Alternative Miss Ireland. It was a delicate conversation, because how do you explain the AMI to Mary from Crystal Swing without scaring her off? Of course, as far as I'm concerned, Crystal Swing owes us that because, where would Crystal Swing be without us gays, and without sounding too proprietorial about it, without Your's Truly?
But lets be honest, their video (the original one that got taken down) had been up for a long time and had less than 200 views before I blogged it (after my gay Donal pointed it out to me as a culchie to culchie bit of fun). But Crystal Swing are not very tech savvy, and Mary seems to think Sean Moncrieff is responsible! Huh?! He was very late to our gay party! And Mary said that they're doing the Late Late Show and they can't do anything till they do that. So, I got my gays on the case to encourage The Late Late to have them on before the AMI (which it appears they will be anyway) but it turns out that even The Late Late now think Sean Moncrieff got the Crystal Swing ball rolling. Which I wouldn't normally care about, because that's the nature of an internet 'viral' - everybody plays a part in adding snow to the snowball. But in this case I do care, because if Crystal Swing were aware of the fact that they owe the gays for their sudden popularity, they'd drop everything to say thanks to the gays by doing the Alternative Miss Ireland. And it's also a bit annoying because as usual, the straights are late to the gay party but get all the credit. The same way they think Madonna invented vogueing. Grrrr....
Anyway, I haven't given up yet. Crystal Swing for AMI!

You know you love it.
Laughing at you, Derek. At you.
I could see them playing Stagecoach but not Coachella.
I'm pretty sure it's not a joke..
Kind of creepy the way the brother and sister interact with the lyrics of the song.
The "Kiss my body" line makes my blood curdle.
Very free spirited, those Irish.

No. No it's not.
I just thought you should know, Crystal Swing played tonight in a local village's festival, and I only missed it because I could not convince my friends to come.
I did everything in my power to make it happen though, I promise you all.
They may be winning me over. I have a soft spot for biker gangs in chorus.
