This is how the story goes:Winter of 2004 and Dagda were on tour visiting a city near my hometown,it was the second time coming here, it was (my last) chance to see them,about a year later these Belfast crusties were history, the first time they played here i was busy and i couldn't get there. So i traveled 300 miles and got there a few hours before the gig starts, i met some old friends,we went to this bar and started drinking more and more telling stories about the old days, i got drunk as fuck and i came late to the squat expecting to have already missed a part of Dagda's performance. But luck was on my side, the live had started later than the usual time and some local crusties were one stage playing their last song tearing the place down. I ve been lucky at all, i got another drink and after a while Dagda got on the stage and set the place on fire: Great band, awesome musicians and very nice people. great performance and the crowd went crazy, the vocalist left the stage two or three times and danced among the crowd who carried him on their hands, after an hour of mayhem they finished their show but the audience was still hungry for their crust so they came back for the encore...
One of thegreatest bands i have ever seen,one of the best gigs i have ever been..
Dagda was the supreme god in Celtic mythology and literally translates into the “good god”. "Blind kings" was one of the first posts, back in spring '07,(old link is deleted, the Div incident), here it is again with full scans. Iit was released in 2000 on Funai Records, it long out of print, if you are lucky enough you will find a dusty copy hidden in a distro. Dagda's members were previously in My Name Is Satan, Pink Turds in Space, Jobbykrust, and Bleeding Rectum.
