The Man Who Built America


At one point in the mid-1970s, Horslips bidded to be Ireland's answer to Steeleye Span. They also had a shot at being the next Jethro Tull, Genesis, or even Yes in its folkier moments. Horslips released many superb albums along the way, becoming Ireland's most acclaimed folk-rock and progressive band. Founded in Dublin during 1970 as a quintet playing a brand of folk-based rock music whose only parallel could be found in the early work of Fairport Convention. Horslips drew on their distinctly Irish roots, and were capable of playing straight folk material when the moment called for it, but weren't afraid to turn up loud and hard, in the best art-rock style, on the right songs. 'The Man Who Built America' marked a major change in Horslips, with their more folk-oriented approach to music now taking a back seat to a more mainstream rock sound. Now remastered, repackaged and including bonus material all in a year that brings Horslips back to the stage with special performances in December at the 02 in Dublin and the Belfast Arena
