PUG­WASH Whe­lan’s, Dublin Thurs 9pm 116 01-4780766/ 1890-200078 With an ex­cel­lent new album, Eleven Mod­ern An­tiq­ui­ties (see re­view, page 14), in the shops from to­day, ex­ten­sive ra­dio play for the latest sin­gle, Take me Away, and a de­meanour that would put a smile on at least two faces on Mount Rush­more, it seems that, af­ter years of giv­ing his all to giv­ing it a go, Thomas Walsh (above, right) is now ready to move up a notch or two. A full Ir­ish tour to pro­mote the album is un­likely, so what we’re left with (so far, any­way) is this Dublin gig, which prom­ises to reach the parts other gigs can’t. Some guests are sched­uled (Divine Com­edy’s Neil Han­non (above, cen­tre) is on the album, so he may turn up), which adds to the fun. Fac­tor in some of the best Bea­tles/XTCin­flu­enced pop mu­sic you’ll hear in an age and you have a cer­ti­fi­able hit.
