It’s A Tightrope

It’s A Tightrope were Kevin Jennings (guitar), Franck Jouneau (drums) and Jean-Pierre Fradet (bass). Maurice Czerniak (bass) was a founding member before emigrating to the U.S. This Bill Graham article from 1981 gives us some background on the band. It’s A Tightrope recorded a Fanning session for RTE on 17th August 1981. The tracks performed were:

1.Oh my darling
2.Murder on the TV
5.Happy ever after

The band won a place in semi-finals of the 1982 Battle of the Bands which was held in London. They played a residency in the Parliament  Inn on Wednesdays and supported Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark at the National Stadium on 21st December 1981. If you have a copy of this or indeed any other unpublished sessions please get in touch.
