For Whom The Bell Toks
Known for its haunting use in the film The Exorcist, ‘Tubular Bells’ has become one of the most famous pieces of music in modern history.
Written and recorded by Mike Oldfield in 1973, the album was presented originally as two distinct 20-odd minute halves. The massive success of the record spawned sequels, covers and a multitude of interpretations – one of which is performed by The Children of Ireland and is one of our highest performing tracks on social media app TikTok.
Staying true to its original spirit, The Children Of Ireland was a one-off project by Tom Newman (who made his name with psych rock band July before being the engineer on the original Tubular Bells) and guitarist Paul Brett (Elmer Gantry’s Velvet Opera, Paul Brett’s Sage, Tintern Abbey, etc.).
