Okay last post before I take a little break. Two ex members of Those Handsome Devils, Frank Rynne (vocals & guitar) and John Bonnie (drums) formed The Baby Snakes in 1985 with (a) Niall O’Sullivan or (b) Colin Byrne (guitar) and Daragh McCarthy (bass) in 1985. The very same year they recorded a Fanning session and one track from that session made it to No.13 in Fanning Fab 50. It also appeared on a compilation Weird Weird World of Guru Weirdbrain on Hotwire Records the same year?? You can watch the boys in action on irish Saturday morning TV here, did anyone else watch Anything Goes just to see the bands, that Mary Fitzgerald used do my head in..
