We’ve been on the lookout for this session for some time so hats off to Seán Dee for doing the business this time round. Those Handsome Devils were Seán Foy (guitar & vocals), Pat Harte (bass), Frank Rynne (guitar) and Johnny Bonnie (drums). They recorded this session for Dave Fanning on Feb 20th 1984. Correction: changed year from 1983 to 1984, master list of session details was incorrect.

Those Handsome Devils were formed in Dublin in 1983 by Sean Foy (guitar, vocals), Frank Rynne (guitar), Pat Harte (bass) and Leo O’Regan (drums). They recorded a single ‘Hep Bop’ in 1984 with producer PJ Curtis in Windmill Lane. By 1985 O’Regan had been replaced by Johnny Bonnie but Bonnie and Rynne soon left to form The Baby Snakes. In 1987 Those Handsome Devils released the following track as a single on Solid Records. I witnessed these guys upstairs in Limerick’s Savoy and was hugely impressed, why they didn’t go further I’ll never know.. If anyone still has the Fanning session you know who to call 😉 Some great photos over here and Seannie Foy will be out on the road soon with Jerry Fish so I think I’ll have to check him out.
