This Irish metal band was put together by the three James brothers in 1985. Comprising vocalist Ciaran, guitarist Declan and bass player Niall, they recruited Bobby Tierney as second guitarist, plus drummer Chris Andralinus to complete their line-up. Influenced by Thin Lizzy, Mama’s Boys and the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal, they made their debut on the Irish sampler, The Green Metal Album. Under rehearsed when they entered the studio to record Out Of Control, the album proved a rudimentary affair, with flat, tuneless vocals. Reeling from poor reviews, the group split shortly afterwards.
