From Dundalk, Choice began life in 1980 as a four piece with Dougie Devlin (bass), Ciaran Vernon (synthesizers, guitars), Noel McCabe (drums) and Jaki McCarrick (vocals). They appeared on RTE youth show Youngline twice in 1981 (footage anyone?) and recorded a session for Dave Fanning which was produced by Ian Wilson. Check out the Brand New Retro blog for lots more.
