Charlie And The Bhoys : Darwen

Concern over band's Darwen gig

By Catherine Pye »
Reporter

POLICE have met management of a Darwen club after it was announced a controversial Celtic band was to play a gig.

Charlie and the Bhoys - whose repertoire consists of Irish Republican anthems and songs about Celtic FC - is booked in to play at the Highfield Club in Ratcliffe Street.

Earlier this month South Lanarkshire Council announced that it had cancelled a gig by the band at a council-run civic centre for St Patrick’s Day, over public safety fears.

But the band insist the rumours they are pro-IRA and encourage trouble are false and are being maliciously spread by rival Rangers FC fans.

Police said managers at Highfield were in talks with overs over the management of the gig.

But Jimmy Grease, vocalist, guitarist and banjo player of the band, said: “We are a Celtic band and there are many Celtic fans living in the Darwen area but the Rangers fans from around the UK always try to have our concerts stopped.

“They falsely claim we are an IRA-supporting band but if you visit our web site you will see this is not the case.

“We have been a full time professional band on the road for 22 years. We have played on every continent in the world and we have never in 22 years had any trouble at any gig or venue.”

Sergeant Mark Wilson of Darwen’s Neighbourhood Policing Team said: “We are aware that the band is due to play at the Highfield and there have been meetings between senior management about it.

“We are looking at the situation.”

Members of the Highfield Club were unavailable for comment.

Late last year, the Highfield Club was temporarily closed after 400 teengers rank amok in the area when they turned up to a Hallowe’en party uninvited after reading about the event on a social networking site.

Police shut the venue until CCTV cameras were installed.
how do these scumbags get away with this :x all you need to do is go on google and find out how bad these people are :x

an example the SAM song

Well I have been a Provo now for fifteen years or more
Of ArmaLites and mortar bombs I thought I knew the score
Now we have a weapon that we've never used before
The Brits are looking worried and they're going to worry more

Tiocfaidh ár lá, sing up the 'RA
SAM missiles in the sky

I started out with petrol bombs and throwing bricks and stones
There were a hundred more lads like me I never was alone
Soon I learned that bricks and stones won't drive the brits away
It wasn't very long before I joined the IRA

Tiocfaidh ár lá, sing up the 'RA
SAM missiles in the sky

Then there came internment in the year of '71
The Brits thought we were beaten that we were on the run
On that early august morning they kicked in our back door
But for every man they took away they missed twenty more

Tiocfaidh ár lá, sing up the 'RA
SAM missiles in the sky

I spent eight years in the cages had time to think and plan
Although they locked away a boy I walked out a man
There's only one thing that I learned while in a cell I lay
The Brits will never leave us until they're blown away

Tiocfaidh ár lá, sing up the 'RA
SAM missiles in the sky

All through the days of hunger strike I watched my comrades die
And in the streets of Belfast you could hear the women cry
I can't forget the massacre that Friday at Loughgall
I salute my fallen comrades as I watch the choppers fall

Tiocfaidh ár lá, sing up the 'RA
SAM missiles in the sky

Do you lot not realise that CATB are a bunch IRA sympathisers who sing about killing British soldiers and sing the praises of murderers who blew up innocents on all sides . them performing a gig in England would be like an Al Qaeda band performing a gig in New York :x

Surface to Air Missiles.

So technically they're signing Surface to Air Missiles Missiles. Which is stupid.
