On St Patrick's Day 1972, Horslips released their debut single, 'Johnny's Wedding' – inventing Celtic rock in a single bound. 50 years later, Madfish are releasing 'More Than You Can Chew' – a stunning 35-disc box set overflowing with music, film & printed matter encapsulating their entire career.
The set has been curated by Bert Jansch/John McLaughlin biographer (and longstanding Horslips fan) Colin Harper in close collaboration with the band members. The audio, including most of the film audio, has been restored & (re)mastered by IFTA award-winning engineer Cormac O'Kane. Herculean Horslips biographer Mark Cunningham has written the books, with fresh input from the band & wearing his day-job designer hat, has lovingly designed the set under the oversight of Horslips' de facto art director Charles O'Connor.
'More Than You Can Chew' also includes two albums new to any digital medium: 'Tryal' (1983) by the Host (a post-Horslips band featuring Eamon, Johnny & Charles) & 'Breaking Star Codes' (1983) by Barry Devlin.
