MINOR DETAIL 1986 release

Postby ocean » Fri Feb 04, 2005 5:43 am

In 1986, MINOR DETAIL (John Hughes, Willie Hughes, Barry Doyle, Ger Kiely, Michael Keoghan & Morgan Fingleton) released a 7 inch single for "She's Back" b/w "Wait" on RCA / Ariola out of Ireland (MD1 was the release number). The single was recorded at The Record Plant in New York. Does anyone know if MINOR DETAIL ever released a 2nd full length lp in 1986? The only full length release I'm aware of was their self titled LP in 1983 on Polygram. For those of you who were not aware this 7 inch release existed, it is worth hunting down just for the obscurity alone. The single is OK - similar to the radio friendly synth-pop on their 1983 release.

Thanks. That's interesting ... I had no idea they released anything else. I think one of the Hughes brothers (John?) went on to do production work.

I was also not aware they had any other releases aside from the Canvas of Life single and their self-titled LP. Very interesting... I'd also like to get a copy, if you do indeed have it.
