would be's hot press

Today’s post was prompted by Abstract Analogue who posted a March 22nd 1990 Hot Press interview by Tony Clayton-Lea with The Would Be’s. From Kingscourt, Co. Cavan, The Would Be’s were Julie McDonnell (vocals), Mattie Finnegan (guitar), Paul Finnegan (guitar), Eamonn Finnegan (bass), Pascal Smith (drums), Aidine O’Reilly (trombone, sax,, violin). Eileen Gogan, most recently to be found performing with Microdisney at the National Concert Hall, also fronted the band for a number of years. Serendipitously the band met at the launch of Tony’s ‘101 Irish Records You Must Hear Before You Die‘ and decided to give it another go. They subsequently released ‘Beautiful Mess‘ in 2013 and performed around the country. The remaining session tracks were ‘All This Rubbish’, ‘Funny Ha Ha’, ‘My Radio Sounds Different In The Dark’.
