Formed by Jil Turner & Dave McGinley when Eugene split after their return from London in 1987. Original Eugene bassist Derek Ennis joined them for studio recordings. Ex Eugene drummer Martin Murphy may also have been involved...
East of Eden recorded a demo circa 1987 which included the track "Something". Shortened their name to Eden in 1988 and recorded a 4-song demo; other song titles include "She's Back In Town", "Sign of Love", "Hush", "Raintown", and a cover of the Pretenders "Kid". Some of these demos include Phelim Gormley, who later played the character Dean in The Committments.
Following some TV appearances and a few live gigs the band came to a halt. Jil joined Celine Carroll (ex-Circus Train) to form the short-lived The Mississippi Mermaids. She now works in the film industry. Dave McGinley joined Act of Love and later the Precious Stones.
