A former new waver Tim McStay had two popular Dublin bands in the 70 and 80s – the Resistors and the Noise Boys – writing the songs for both at that vibrant time. The Resistors featured on the legendary Just For Kicks album with other Dublin bands including U2 in 1979 – one of Tim’s songs “Service with a Smile”. Later Phil Lynott also produced a single for the Resistors – Steal My Love. Eventually Tim drifted out of the music scene but never stopped writing and a few years ago started doing small gigs again and frequenting studios. Tim also has two songs - Jeanie and Angels - on new Irish movie Danny Boy set for release in 2020.
New Tim McStay single for 2020 – The Yearning
Sometimes a song comes straight from the heart and the Yearning is one of those songs. Based on a real memory from long ago, Tim wrote this beautiful ballad to capture that memory. In live performance it evokes a special response. Tim along with Ray McGee and his trusty bouzouki went to his old friend TJM Tutty’s studio in Wicklow in late 2019. They put the song down in one session. It’s a forerunner to Tim’s solo album on the way later in 2020
The yearning is available on Spotify, You Tube Music, Deezer and all other major platforms
Come to the DC Club on 14th February when Tim will play The Yearning and his other great songs.
