Three piece outfit from Dublin, Eire, featuring Matthew Deveraux (vocals), Shane Wearen (mandolin), and Sean Molloy (bass). A&M Records signed the band after their debut release, a limited edition cassette titled Why Go Bald (the band indeed, are well shorn), caused ripples throughout Londonâ€™s A&R departments. Their first single, â€˜Dogs With No Tailsâ€™, was heavily promoted, but, despite its memorably bizarre display of Eastern European and pop traditions, it failed to achieve a strong chart placing. Their debut album was loaded with quirky but self-consciously â€˜weirdâ€™ songs namechecking Airfix model kits and the like. The bandâ€™s idiosyncratic talent attracted some attention but after extensive touring in support of the album they elected to call it a day.Portions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
