Formed by ex members of Lord John White, Sack were Martin McCann (vocals), John Brereton (guitar), James Nesbitt (guitar) Derek Lee (bass) and Tony Brereton (drums). Martin McCann had previously been in Aiken Drum. The wiki also lists Ken Haughton (guitars) and Darrell Rainey (bass). The band released three albums; ‘You Are What You Eat’ (1994) [lemon records], ‘Butterfly Effect’ (1997) [dirt records]and ‘Adventura Majestica’ (2001) [jetset junta]. This particular track featured on a cassette compilation ‘Canadian Club 6 Of The Best Tour‘ and comes courtesy Darren who kindly dug it out for us.

    “That’s like asking John Lennon about the Quarrymen snaps Sack guitarist John Brereton when I ask about a band called Lord John White, the eighties outfit that first united John with frontman Martin McCann. ”
