Vanilla Ice

This innovative and much imitated Irish folk-rock band comprised Barry Devlin (bass/vocals), Declan Sinnott (lead guitar/vocals), Eamonn Carr (drums/vocals), Charles O'Connor (violin), and Jim Lockhart (flute/violin/keyboards). Sinnott, later joined Moving Hearts and was replaced by Gus Gueist and John Fean in turn. Horslips, formed in 1970 and took the theme of Irish legends for many of their songs.

The group toured as support to Steeleye Span and featured a complete performance of The Tain, a more rock-based recording than their previous recordings. Feans guitar work could switch from the melodic style of 'Aliens', to the much heavier 'Man Who Built America'. They maintained a strong cult following, but, only one album, The Book Of Invasions - A Celtic Symphony, reached the UK Top 40. The Man Who Built America received a lot of air-play when it was released in 1979, but wider acceptance evaded them, and the group split. Fean, O'Connor and Carr later formed Host, with Chris Page (bass), and Peter Keen (keyboards), in order to pursue the folk path still further.
