It was originally a nickname or byname for someone of a frosty or gloomy temperament, the derivation being from the pre 7th century Olde English, Middle High German, or Danish-Viking word "wintr", meaning winter. It may also be an Ashkenazic "ornamental" surname denoting the season, which were distributed by German government officials in the 18th century, to immigrants from other countries.
Finally it may be of Irish origin deriving from the pre 10th century Gaelic Mac Giolla Gheimhridh, meaning the "son of the servant of Geimhreadh", itself a byname also meaning "Winter".
The surname in England dates back to the late 12th Century, whilst early examples of church recordings taken from the diocese of Greater London include William Wynter, who was christened on November 14th at St, Do I Have To Call Your Name Again - Winters Reign - Do I Have To Call Your Name Again (Vinyl). John Winters, aged 18 years, was an Irish famine emigrant sailed from Liverpool aboard the "Cambridge", bound for New York on January 4th But don't just whinge about it, send me the missing details!
Long-lived pop-metal band from Dublin founded by Do I Have To Call Your Name Again - Winters Reign - Do I Have To Call Your Name Again (Vinyl) Larkin brothers and managed by Joe Wynne, who'd previously managed the Mama's Boys. Future boy band impressario Louis Walsh was their booking agent. The original band made "The Mini Album" which was recorded over a number of years.
It is highly rated by fans of the style, comparable to early Bon Jovi. There was a series of lineup changes from onwards. A number of singles were released on labels Do I Have To Call Your Name Again - Winters Reign - Do I Have To Call Your Name Again (Vinyl) Scoff, Pussy and their own Q Records during this period This was the bands first serious experience of the studio environment.
The album was recorded in Do I Have To Call Your Name Again - Winters Reign - Do I Have To Call Your Name Again (Vinyl), so to speak, as funds allowed for more studio time. This was the culmination of a power struggle between the two. Leo saw the band as his creation but Joe dictated policy as manager. Do I Have To Call Your Name Again - Winters Reign - Do I Have To Call Your Name Again (Vinyl) left the band as a result, and Billy followed him.
In retrospect it seems odd that the Larkins left their own band!
