Holding up nicely
The Walls announce Olympia date, re-release a classic Stunning LP, and get no fewer than nine tunes onto two feature films
The Hot Press Newsdesk, 10 Mar 2003
The Walls leave their lonely writer's garret to play shows at The Granary, Killarney (April 9); Dolan's, Limerick (10); and the Ambassador, Dublin (12).
The other good news is that having secured the rights, the brothers Wall are re-releasing The Stunning's classic Paradise In The Picturehouse album on their own Earshot label. Four songs have been re-mixed by Marc Carolan, and extra tracks added to make it a must-by for fans.
If that wasn't enough to be going on with, The Walls have nine songs featured on two films, Dead Bodies and Goldfish Memory, which are premiering here over the next few weeks.

Five years after their Hi-Lo debut, the former Stunning Brothers return to the fray with their strongest calling card to date. Recorded largely in the famed Black Box studios in France with the ubiquitous Dave Odlum at the helm, New Dawn Breaking is an immediately impressive record on almost every level (and very nicely packaged it is too in gatefold digipak!)

Newly appointed to IMRO, Steve Wall is never too busy to hang out in the Loire Valley with the boys and turn out more of that early-‘90s rock that we’re all so fond of. The first track from the new album, due late next month, is a 2005 ‘Bright And Shining Sun’: no frills, earnest, friendly stuff that the fans will love. Some of us still remember when they were playing off the back of a truck in Ballinrobe.
