The Fountainhead

fountainhead2
From Dublin, The Fountainhead were Steve Belton (guitar) and Pat O’ Donnell (keyboards). They self released their first 12″ single ‘Rhythm Method’ in 1984. They signed to China Records and released two albums ‘Burning Touch‘ in 1986 and ‘Voice Of Reason’ in 1988. I recall a number of versions of ‘Rhythm Method’ but this one, taped off Dave Fanning’s radio show was an early favourite of mine and still sounds great today (apologies for posting a truncated version).
