Scullion live at The Purty Kitchen
Saturday, 12th January
In the summer of 1979 Sonny Condell was sharing a flat in Dún Laoghaire, Co. Dublin with Greg Boland who had played guitar on the recording of Camouflage, Sonny’s debut solo album on the Mulligan label. They were joined around this time by singer and harmonica player, Philip King who, having decided to quit teaching for a career in music, and had also become their flat mate. Boland had just left Irish band ‘Stagalee’ and they began doing some informal gigs together. King had also approached Mulligan with the aim of securing a solo album deal but, as the trio’s performances were being well received, the idea of combining the approach to Mulligan as a group became an attractive alternative. All that was needed was a collective name. Taking the story back three years to 1976 would find Condell and King playing together with Freddie White (Vocals / Guitar), Mick ‘Black Dog’ Daly (Vocals / Guitar), Dan Fitzgerald (Drums) and Eamon Doyle (Bass). This band was a fun relief for the members, all of whom were involved in other group and solo projects. King came up with the name ‘Scullion’ (meaning, a kitchen servant) for this collective and it was decided to use this name for the trio (Sonny Condell, Greg Boland and Philip King) that evolved from these sessions. The founding members were Sonny Condell (also a member of another popular Irish music band Tír na nÓg), Philip King, Greg Boland and Jimmy O’Brien Moran. O’Brien Moran left the band in 1980, after the first album. Robbie Overson, replacing guitarist Greg Boland, joined the band in 1987. Scullion continue to play live several albums later and you can catch them at the Purty for one night only!
