Discogs Information



Indie pop band from Ireland formed in 1988 by the three Finnegan brothers, evolving from their earlier band The Nobody's. Another brother James Finnegan managed the band, and footed the bill for the recording and for the first pressing of 250 copies of their debut single, released by Danceline Records. This single was famously championed by John Peel (it reached number 12 in that year's Festive 50). 17 year old singer Julie McDonnell left the band shortly afterwards, replaced by Eileen Gogan before breaking up in 1991. The band reformed in 2000 with a new singer, Karen Cunningham.
