From Galway, The Little Fish were Jimmy Fitzgerald (vocals & guitar), Brendan Duffy (guitar), Turlough Moore (bass) and Kieran Joyce (drums). On 14th November 1989 they recorded a 4 track session for Dave Fanning featuring ‘All about Eddy’, ‘Connemara Girl’, ‘Garden Gate’ and ‘Piece of your courage’. Fans of the band will be interested to hear that Jimmy and Turlough will be appearing at the Galway Hearts festival on July 27th:

A festival highlight will be a celebration of Galway band The Little Fish on Thursday 27th at 7pm. ‘The Story of…The Little Fish’ will see Jimmy Fitzgerald and Turlough Moore perform songs like ‘Patsy Child’, ‘Goodbye’, ‘It’s Waiting That I Hate’, and ‘Long Grass’ and reminisce about the band (admission €6).

I had originally credited this track to 33rd Hurricane but Finbarr Doherty of that band says while he would have been proud to have written this song that it was not them. Hopefully some eagle eyed/eared reader will be able to set this record straight in the not too distant future.

Happy to finally announce a successful resolution. Thanks to a kind benefactor who lent us his entire collection of precious Fanning tapes (thank you Thomas!) we came across another recording of this track which identifies the band as Little Fish. Little Fish were Jimmy Fitzgerald (vocals & guitar), Brendan Duffy (guitar), Turlough Moore (bass) and Kieran Joyce (drums). The Galway band recorded a Fanning session in November 1989 so our new mission is to track that down (and maybe a band photo to boot).
