It’s time for a Microdisney revival, and the release this week of the career-spanning Daunt Square to Elsewhere: Anthology 1982-1988 may be the catalyst for one.

Cathal Coughlan and Sean O’Hagan’s band lit up 1980s Ireland for many with such releases as The Clock Comes Down The Stairs, Crooked Mile and We Hate You South African Bastards.

Ater Microdisney, Coughlan went onto more scathing heights with Fatima Mansions, while O’Hagan rustled together the High Llamas.

The press release reference to “one of the UK’s best post-punk bands” will come as news to Cork’s citizens, who still consider the act one of Leeside’s finest.
