I know what you're thinking. Where did I hear that name? Go on..probe the upper cerebrum a little more. No luck? Remember the talking lion from The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe? Or as the BBC children's programme I was happily accustomed to, The Chronicles of Narnia?
Which is where we come to Aslan. Much like the lion, the Irishmen experienced their heyday ten years ago - these guys formed when Maggie Thatcher was still in power! Before splitting in 1988, reforming in 1993 and releasing their biggest hit Crazy World in 1994 - yes, nine years ago!
Which comes as something of a mystery with this re-release. Admittedly they're no U2 (think Crowded House with more soul) but who says one last hump of the radio before retirement is illegal (as long as it's done discreetly). There's a good chance they'll collect some late dues too.
