Ego Minefield

From: Letterkenny, Donegal

Active: 198?-1990

Style: Powerpop



Late 80s powerpop quartet from Letterkenny, managed by Tony Strickland (Upfront Management). They played whenever and wherever they could, including lots of gigs in the Dublin area during 1989-90. They did a few radio appearances including Dave Fanning's show and signed to the Dublin based Danceline label, for whom they recorded two singles. A promo video was made for the second of these "Fear of Falling". Their last gig was at the Baggot Inn in Dublin in October 1990, after which they split. In recent years the band has come together for xmas gigs in the Letterkenny area.

Mark Bradley died in 2011.

The "Fear of Falling" promo video can currently be viewed on youtube along with three early vintage performances from Ballyshannon ("Reality", "Impossible" and "Walk From You") and a further three recorded live at the Mean Fiddler in London on 9th May 1990 ("Break The Ice", "All In Your Mind" and "So Far From Here").
