Five piece Dublin RnB/New Wave group who released two singles in their three year career.
They played their first gig on November 25 1977 in The Castle Inn, Salthill, toured with The Fabalous Fabrics in February 1979, one of the earliest Irish New Wave tours and played the second New Wave Festival in the Project Arts Centre on September 15 1979.
Niall Stokes (Hot Press) caught them supporting The Boomtown Rats in The Stella Cinema, Rathmines in December 1977:
I caught the support band Sacre Bleu, with old Eyeless mate Pat Courtney on bass, briefly on the second night and liked what I saw. Unfortunate to have to break the ice before what was at the time an almost completely empty hall (the early arrivals had all gone upstairs to the balcony), they manifested a confidence and professionalism far beyond their age as a unit.
I wasn’t able to stay around long enough to offer anything like a constructive critique of their music but this much seemed clear – that if they can further develop the tightness which already marks their collective playing, they’ll produce an R n B sound to match the best that’s ever come out of this country.
Here’s the fantastically designed poster for the 2nd annual New Wave Festival in 1978:
