Sligo’s most famous export Those Nervous Animals were formed in 1981 by Barry Brennan (vocals, guitar, keyboards), Padraig Meehan (guitar), Eddie Lee (bass) and Cathal Hayden (drums). They released 5 singles and one EP ‘Hyperspace’ (1985). The single ‘The Business Enterprise (My Friend John)‘ spent 7 weeks in the Irish charts and reached 21. It recently featured on Tom Dunne’s ‘Top 30 Irish Hits Volume 2‘ and has received continued airplay since. Those Nervous Animals featured at the 1986 Self Aid benefit concert at Dublin’s RDS. The band are due to play the Hennigan’s Bar Reunion in the Clarence Hotel Sligo on May 19th 2012. This demo has been shamelessly lifted from the Sligo Bands site.
