Wheels On Fire 1988.jpg

A couple of weeks ago we posted a demo played by Dave Fanning of an at the time unidentified band from Lahinch, Co. Clare. We now know the band were  Wheels on Fire and have identified the members as Jennie McGrath and Anne Parker (vocals), Paul O’Brien & Anthony Edwards (guitars), Maureen Comber (bass) and Theresa O’Brien (drums). Anthony Edwards of the band was kind enough to locate some photos (the above taken at Sir Henrys in Cork during the Hot Press Band Of ’88 competition) and upload a selection of live recordings to Soundcloud.

Dave Fanning played this demo track in 1990. Thank you Anthony and Kenny for providing the missing details. Any chance of a band photo? 🙂
