It’s been too long, thank you Paul McArdle of The Hellfire Club for kicking us into renewed action. The Hellfire Club were Tom Doyle (vocals/guitar), Joe Ussher (lead guitar/vocals/piano), John Doyle (bass), Paul McArdle and later Mark Downing (drums). They recorded a Dave Fanning session in studio 8 on March 14th 1989. There were 4 tracks put to tape that day, one of which can be found here. We are now posting the three remaining tracks. Last but not least, thank you Thomas Erbsloh for your awesome tape archive.

The Hellfire Club (1989)

Posted in Fanning, session with tags , on September 28, 2012 by Fanning Sessions

The Hellfire Club were Tom Doyle (vocals/guitar), Joe Ussher (lead guitar/vocals/piano), John Doyle (bass), Paul McArdle and later Mark Downing (drums). Active from 1988-1990 the Dublin band released one single ‘Waiting (For Love To Appear)’ on Bloodred Records in 1990. They recorded a Fanning session in 1989 and the following is the only track of the four which can be tracked down. For more Hellfire Club action check out Joe Usher’s YouTube channel where you’ll find 1988 recordings of the band in McGonagles supporting The Fountainhead and Blue in Heaven. As always if you have the remaining Fanning session tracks or indeed any irish radio recordings from the late 80s/early 90s we’d love to hear from you.
