Power of Dreams

Once upon a time there was an Irish band called Power of Dreams; in 1989 they released a debut EP that had all the majors fighting for their signatures. Caught up in the early 90s indie tidal wave they were feted as the next big things.

They signed a megabucks deal and toured worldwide to rave reviews. Their classic indie-stylings earning rave reviews. They were, along with many other indie bands, "big in Japan".

Alas their fame would not last and in 1994 the band split. Members went their separate ways - some to release solo material, one to play with the Sultans of Ping - of whom more later.

They're making a comeback now. I'mnot sure I hold with all these old bands coming back for one last money-making scam, but there we go. The power of the 35-year-old man's disposable income is what it is.

So here we are; Power of Dreams - 100 Ways to Kill a Love.

Not much of an entry, but it'll do for now.


  1. great site btw. brings back some v good memories. P.O.D were great. from memory....100 ways to kill a love that you have up here was the setanta single that was different (rougher, better) to the album version on immigrants, emigrants and me. their masterpiece was the 2nd album...to hell with common sense... such a shame they never made it. i have pretty much the whole back catalogue if you want it. coltrane.industries at the gmail.com is my address and i'll mail you it. g.
