This website is devoted to that great seminal Manchester band, the Shirehorses. The importance of this band is quite simply staggering. Forget the Beatles, forget the Stone Roses, without the Shirehorses we would not have modern pop music as we know it today. After all, if this band had never existed, many of today's top pop turns would never have formed, playing inferior covers of the Shirehorses' greatest hits. Who could live without the genius of Monaco, or the fresh young sound of Edwyn Collins? And where on earth would we be without the most successful heavy metal star the world has ever seen, Baby Bird.
The Shirehorses' guise took many forms and they went through many name changes in their brief, but turbulent, career. Presented on this web site are the lyrics to 17 (yes, seventeen!) of their greatest hits, together with some rare sound samples. One of their tracks was even a minor top 100 hit in North Korea!

Also featured is a review of one of the gigs on their recent comeback tour, at the Birmingham NEC. They came, they saw, they cantered. Click here to read that!!!Also, please sign the guestbook, or you can email me.......
