The Blackouts
Dublin 1978 - 1979

Line up;
Peter Delaney Vocals
Paul Angers Lead Guitar
Joey McKenna Rhythm
Ray Harford Bass

The band would split in '79 when Ray Hartford & Paul Angers formed The Fast Skirts. Ray would also later played with Assembly.

I believe that the Blackouts may have supported U2 & the Virgin Prunes at the Howth community Centre.
