Those Handsome Devils (1984 Session)

handsome devils 2

We’ve been on the lookout for this session for some time so hats off to Seán Dee for doing the business this time round. Those Handsome Devils were Seán Foy (guitar & vocals), Pat Harte (bass), Frank Rynne (guitar) and Johnny Bonnie (drums). They recorded this session for Dave Fanning on Feb 20th 1984. Correction: changed year from 1983 to 1984, master list of session details was incorrect.

  1. Seán Dee now has legendary status! Wasn’t there another session in 84?

  2. frank rynne Says:

    1983

  3. Never had that status given to me before so I’ll take it! Was the session aired in 1983 as well Frank? I’d have thought 84 too.

  4. Great band seen them live many times and busking on Grafton St actually think we the FF supported them at UCD have the poster, great days indeed

  5. WOW!

  6. Memories of coming down from Freebird Records, out onto Grafton St, and seeing that Those Handsome Devils were out busking again. With Pat Harte playing a double-bass while crouching on top of it!

    Thank you to all the Devils for cheering up so many chilly Winter afternoons in Dublin 🙂

    And thanks too to Fanning Sessions, you’re not the only one who’s been waiting a long time for this session!

  7. Thank you for all the comments. I emailed Frank and he has confirmed the session would have been 1984 as he was in school in Feb 1993.

  8. I knew i wasn’t cool enough in 1983 to be listening to THD!

  9. Here’s a link to a 1984 feature in Hot Press that I converted to PDF. My link will be avialble for a week so to the moderator, feel free to make a more permanent one: https://we.tl/t-pFRqVy1gRo
