The one with Cork Rock

Have a read off this and then go off and vote!!!

The history of Cork rock music is soon to be revealed for the first time with the release of Cork Rock, a comprehensive account of the artists, musicians and culture that has contributed to this long-lasting Leeside phenomenon.

Journalist and author Mark McAvoy explores the roots of the Cork rock movement from the late 1950s up to the present day. With exclusive photos and interviews with leading performers, managers, DJs and promoters, this book is essential reading for all true music fans.

The fascinating stories behind many of the big names in Cork rock music have yet to be told and this revealing new book uncovers  the rise of the unrivalled talent that was Rory Gallagher, the talent and influence of Finbarr Donnelly, the uncompromising nature of Cathal Coughlan and Microdisney through to more recent acts such as Bishopstown’s finest The Frank And Walters and the irrepressible Sultans of Ping.

To celebrate the publication of Cork Rock, music fans are being asked to select a cover, which they think best represents the history of rock in Cork. Three possible covers have been designed that showcase various Cork acts including Rory Gallagher, Five Go Down To The Sea?, Simple Kid and The Sultans of Ping.
