DURING the 1990s, Something Happens scored a deal with Virgin Records to release their excellent brace of first albums.

Their track 'Parachute' became a bona fide Irish classic and the band have continued with occasional shows that remind audiences just how good and how many brilliant songs Tom Dunne and company really wrote and performed.

They headline the racecourse stage at Bulmer’s Live at Leopardstown Tommorow (Thursday, July 25).
