Background story: Eddie Mooney and the Grave – song by song: No.5: „Soldiers“

Track 5 of 10 of the Eddie Mooney and the Grave ft Mike Rowbottom vinyl collection: „Soldiers“ was also recorded as a demo in one take in Manchester in late 1978, along with several other tracks and the original recording needed considerable work remastering for release. This song was controversial in its day due to its political content regarding the troubles in N Ireland. Thankfully today the lyrics are no longer topical. Not released in the 70s, „Soldiers“ appeared eventually on vinyl on the „Lost 1978 Demo Tapes“ EP on Malte Buhr’s German Still Unbeatable label in October 2019. On drums, the late Chris Fisher, guitar Mike Rowbottom and myself on bass and lead vocals.
