Dublin punk-reggae band fronted by Joey Cashman (ex Mod-L's). Paul Aungier and Ray Hartford had previously been in The Blackouts. John 'Sarge' O'Hara joined from the Mod-L's when they split in 1980.
The Fast Skirts played straight punk mixed with straight reggae rather than a Police style hybrid. They played the usual Dublin haunts -- McGonagles, Ivy Rooms, Summit Inn (supporting The Spies), etc -- often getting onto the bill as support act thanks to Joey's role as soundman. The band split when Joey Cashman and Sarge O'Hara joined DC Nien. Ray Harford was later with The Assembly and The Gorehounds.
