Subject: Oyster band/Here's to you!

Hi! My name is Alberto (real name) and am looking for information on a group called "the oyster band" I think they are from Ireland and are similar to the "Pouges" with a punk/trad. music sound, know what I mean? They do a real cool song which I think is called "Here's to you" (at least that phrase is predominant in the tune) . May anyone out there pass on info to me on where I may find them on the web or have lyrics to the above song? Thanks! Alberto

They are a band from Kent in England, not Ireland.

The track is on one of their records which I have, I will see if lyrics readily available.

Try their site anyway.

Just sang their Old Dance at a singing camp bonfire, and it was a hit. Don't even remember their lead singer's name, but I'd walk over hot coals for that one Wow!!

Heres the words, not one of their better lyrics I have to say, but good fun. From the Holy Bandits CD. Get hold of some of their records and enjoy them.

Lead singer is John Jones by the way.

Washed up in Coketown, down and halfway dead,
Holes in my pocket, holes in my head,
I was walking on water, I was staring at the blue,
I was walking down the street and I started falling through.


So here's to you, whoever you may be,
You that held me up when I was sinking in the sea,
If you were in Kiltartan, me in Katmandu,
I still would not forget you, I would do the same for you.

Half a million strangers, without a hand to lend,
Anyone I talked to, was my oldest friend,
A barman or a policeman, a lamppost or a dog,
I heard the Virgin Mary, singing in the fog.
