Dublin Street Artist Remembers The “Capitols” And The “Clipper Carton” (Carlton)

I think that the artist has made a mistake here. If I remember correctly the showband was named the "The Clipper Carlton" not "The Clipper Carton". Maybe the error was deliberate.
Personally, I really hated all the showbands (with the possible exception of the Freshmen).
Strabane’s Clipper Carlton are credited with popularising the showband. Fronted by Fergie O’Hagan, they were originally a touring big band. They later became popular in Britain and on the U.S. and Canadian Irish club circuit.
