This Weekend I’ll Mostly Be Listening to… The Would Be’s June 3, 2017

Recently I did a TWIMBLT of bands from Cavan included were The Would Be’s. They deserve a post of their own.

Formed in 1990, they shot to prominence with their brilliant single “I’m Hardly Ever Wrong” which was a John Peel favourite. They did a Peel Session and were much sought after by various labels big and small. They released a number of EPs signed a record deal but never released an album. They had a couple of different lead singers Julie McDonnell on “I’m Hardly Ever Wrong”, she was replaced by Eileen Gogan (who has since sung with The Revenants , The Drays and her own band The Instructions). They broke up in 1992…
However in 2012 they reformed and have since released a batch of albums.
Another one of those great Irish bands that were all set to make it but didn’t.

The Fanning Sessions has some rare tracks of theirs
