The Joys

I know very little about this Dublin band, apart from the fact that Terry Hackett apparently played drums. This track featured on the Nationwide Vol 3 cassette compilation from Danceline Records in 1989. As usual if you know more please leave a comment or send an email.

Update: Deirdre O’Neill was the vocalist, she went on to further success with Junkster.

Update #2: This song was one of four recorded at Sun Studios on 11th June 1990. The line up was Deirdre O’Neill (vocals), Pat Murphy (guitar), Graham Darcy (bass), Aidan Lane (guitar) and Anto Darcy (drums). The session was engineered by Paul Lacey.
