Candy Apple Red were a Dublin 4 piece featuring Dave Dorgan (vocals), Gerry Fahy (guitar), Eamonn Elliott (drums) and Damien Byrne (bass).

The artwork is the inlay for the tape containing this track. If you click on it you should land on our facebook page where you will find many more Fanning tapes.

A Dublin 4 piece featuring Dave Dorgan (vocals), Gerry Fahy (guitar), Eamonn Elliott (drums) and Damien Byrne (bass) this is another track from the ‘Canadian Club 6 Of The Best Tour‘ featured recently. Gerry Fahy was previously with the excellent The Slowest Clock and Dave Dorgan was in The Candyshop and later Sack.

“In the form of a classic four man guitar band, Dublin’s Candy Apple Red craft splendid indie rock with a casual feel that makes you think the band were born to do this and nothing else. Good songs come easy for Candy Apple Red and frontman Dave Dorgan has recently come into his own. Why no one has taken these guys on board yet is a mystery to me.”
