Paul O’ Brien – Lee Harveys

Ten-Midnight got an insight from Paul O’ Brien from the Lee Harveys into what songs inspired and shaped his musical life.

Play: The Lee Harveys – Tell The Truth



Play: Sweet – Ballroom Blitz

Pure Glam Rock ‘N’ Roll. Brilliant!


Play: Slade – Far Far Away

A stunning tune from a cool band, Noddy Holder has one of the strongest voices ever.


Play: Love – Alone Again Or

Again just a brilliant tune, The Damned done a good cover of this.


Play: Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young – Woodstock

I am a Hippie, love anything Woodstock!


Play: The Atrix – Treasure on the Wasteland.

A band from Dublin, released in 1980. I heard it on pirate radio and my fingers hit the record button on my cassette recorder, loved it since.


Play: Ian Dury and the Blockheads – Sex and Drugs and Rock and Roll.

Brilliant writer, brilliant band, say no more.


Play: Tubeway Army – Are Friends Electric.

Powerful tune, Simply love it.


Play: Talking Heads – Psycho Killer

Just cool, myself and my mate made a few quid busking it.


Play: The Cramps – The Most Exalted Potentate of Love.

Love The Cramps, Lux is God.


Favourite song ever:

Play: Tubeway Army – Are Friends Electric.

I have many favourites, I grew up in the 80s, enough said.


Favourite song you have been involved in musically:

Play: Lee Harveys – Bright Light.

Again I have many but maybe “Bright Light” from the first Lee Harveys Album “Gun City”. It was my first time back in the studio in 17 years, we recorded the album in one day.
