Bio:

Originally a mod band called Switch the Mood which changed its name around 1986/87 to Cut The Bag, who went on to win a Battle Of The Bands at Queens University and play throughout Ireland. They also did some local TV appearances around 1988.

Jimmy Riddle worked at Outlet Studios in Belfast with Cell Fay and the band was able to practice and record many demos at this studio. Nothing was ever released. These recordings are influenced by mod and 60ís Motown as well as Paul Weller and Elvis Costello. Dee MacDowell and Brendan Kelly were the main songwriters.
