50 Years - 5 Songs - 50 Weeks: 2003

Week 14 is all about 2003. Radio was still king, and although file sharing of older music was in full stride despite the shutdown of Napster, new music found its way to us predominantly via radio. The industry model in place since the early 1950s seemed like it was on solid ground with no threat to its dominance. Very few people, even the techiest among us, had a clue how muh that was going to change in the next half decade.

Classic Front-to-Back Albums: The Saw Doctors - Same Oul Town

Often wrongly cubbyholed as uni-dimensional purveyors of Paddyrock, the Saw Doctors did not shy away from embracing their roots while drawing deeply from the wells of US FM rock and early UK punk. The Saw Doctors did for the west of Ireland what Bruce Springsteen did for the post-War Jersey Shore and what John Mellencamp did for life growing up amid the cornstalks and Dairy Queens of Indiana. Like Springsteen and Mellencamp, The Saw Doctors tell tales of everyday lives set in a particular time and place but still easily identifiable to the listener regardless of locational circumstance.
