Mairead and I were coffeeing on Botanic Avenue this past June in South Belfast, and a man asked if he could join our table on the street. He turned out to be Joby Fox, a member of the 80s-90s Northern Irish band Energy Orchard, and they had shot the music video for their single “Sailor Town” in where else? Braddock, Pennsylvania.
So we recorded an impromptu reminiscence session right there at Clements, Mairead on audio, me on video. And “Sailor Town”, you can see it woven into the interview, or in its completeness here. You can see Joby in his 1990 version, in the thumbnail gallery above or on the right in the video. And his website is here.
