Microdisney

Originally from Cork, Microdisney were Cathal Coughlan (vocals), Sean O’Hagan (guitar), Giordaí Ua Laoghaire (guitar), Chris McCarthy (bass) and Dave Galvin (drums). They recorded one Fanning session on 31st March 1981 featuring four tracks – ‘Cack Hand’, ‘Let’s Get Married’, ‘Mitchelstown’ and ‘Victory’. They also recorded no less than six Peel sessions. Please visit the Irish Punk & New Wave Discography to read more. Update: Have now updated with the full interview which was actually recorded on April 14th 1988, the night they played McGonagles and on the eve of their Cork show. The recording starts off in mono but then switches to stereo and there is a small interruption for the tape flip.
