Below are the three songs from the Subterraneans´1987 release on Mother Records, SLUM, which I picked up on Amazon last week. The brief biog of the band comes from the wonderful Irish Punk and New Wave Discography.
Formed circa1982. Carling/Hot Press Band of 1986 which should have led to a single on WEA but the label dragged its heals and the band’s debut came out on Mother instead. They did some successful tours as support act in the UK and Mother re-released “Slum” with a remixed “Maxi-Joy” on the A-side, but they then seemed to fizzle out.
A second single produced by Pete Holiday appeared four years later in 1991. The band also recorded a Fanning session but then broke up before it was broadcast. There are undoubtedly many unreleased recordings. Unreleased demo track titles include: Suzi Side / Fahrenheit Days / Oh Mister / The Wasteland.
Denis Begley did the band’s live sound. Derek Barter and Paddy Brady went on to play in The Knocking Shop.
