100 Boys (3:21)

Cover of The Golden Horde

From The Golden Horde and 3 other releases

The Golden Horde (1982–1994) were a rock, punk, psychedelic, pop band based in Dublin, Ireland. The most renowned line-up of the band was: Peter O’Kennedy, John Connor, Sam Steiger, Des O’ Byrne and Simon Carmody, although at the very first live performance, there were 13 band members on stage.

The first recording, the EP: Dig That Crazy Grave, was released in 1983 on the Hotwire label. The first album, The Chocolate Biscuit Conspiracy!, followed in 1984, and included spoken-word contributions from futurist and satirist Robert Anton Wilson. Des O’ Byrne scored the music for the premiere performance of Wilson’s “Wilhelm Reich in Hell” play, which debuted in at the Edmund Burke Hall in Trinity College, Dublin. Wilson later went on to include ‘The Golden Horde’ (as a fictitious rock group performing at a music festival) in one of his later Illuminatus! book series. The second album …in Reality, recorded throughout 1985, was released on MediaBurn and concurrently on the Hotwire label, in 1986.

Numerous BBC and RTE Radio Sessions were completed from 1985–1993, featuring Golden Horde originals as well as their own often eclectic choice of cover songs.

An unreleased album, known as The Recording Company, co-produced with Paul Thomas[1] (U2, Clannad), as well as unreleased recordings with legendary producer Denny Cordell (The Cranberries, Tom Petty, The Move), and other demo recordings are surfacing increasingly across the internet (on “SoundCloud”, YouTube, Facebook, and LastFM etc.).
