Leodhasachising Popular Music Since 1979...

A' ghiadh mhor!! The Outer Hebrides' top exponents of Avante Gaelic Obscurist Folk Rock have created a new wepsite to replace their defunct one at groups.msn.com. And here it is.

Here's the places you can go from this page:

AGOFR but not the Guireans THE GUIREANS not AGOFR at all at all

Obviously, the Guireans are the original and purest artistes in the genre of Avante Gaelic Obscurist Folk Rock (AGOFR).

Some lesser practitioners of the genre have their websites listed below:

The AGOFR Supergroup

aka "Lechends of AGOFR 30th Anniversary Tour"

The Dun Ringles

Overproduced pomp-AGOFR rooted in 70s prog virtuosity and verging dangerously close to "proper" music.

Coinneach Gobha's Library of the Guireans

Go to the Library and find out everything you never wanted to know about the Guireans and their place in Avante Gaelic Obscurist Folk Rock mythology.

Hosted within a high-end supercomputer simulation of a dilapidated portakabin on Keith Street, the Library includes the band bio/tapeography, live appearances, links, old news - all the stuff that used to be on the old Guireans msn groups site

Now if only we could get rid of the virtual old bleigeards who come in every day and lurk in the reference section...

Current day-to-day Guireans ruppish - news, posts, comments etc.

Old Guireans Myspace Page

Between MSN and Facebook, most of the Guireans' day-to-day blogs, song posts etc were on Myspace. There's still a page there but there's fleek all on it nowadays.
