The Malfunctions (part two)

Posted in Fanning, Music with tags , , , , on January 20, 2010 by Fanning Sessions

The Malfunctions have already featured as have The Wild Herrings from whence this Ballyshannon act evolved but they are in my mind because Fiona and Irene Pender again gracing the stage this time as The Pender Sisters. I have yet to read any reviews of those gigs so if anyone would like to drop a line or post some recordings please do. This track is taken from the 1989 Danceline Records compilation Nationwide.

The Malfunctions

From Ballyshannon in Co.Donegal The Malfunctions rose from the ashes of The Wild Herrings and featured two members of that band; Fiona Pender (vocals) and Michael Christie (drums). They were joined by David Meade (guitar) and Stephen Gallagher (bass) and released one single for EMI ‘Say Goodbye’ / ‘Party At My Place’ in 1988 and had two tracks on the Danceline Records Nationwide compilation in 1989. They recorded one Fanning Session but we think this track is a demo.

Someone has been digging through the archives and has posted a recording of The Malfunctions appearance on RTE’s Jo Maxi in 1989 with single ‘Say Goodbye’
