Not to be confused with the short-lived Dublin thrash band, this Panic hailed from Bangor and were active for a number of years and appear to have enjoyed a much higher profile than their Dublin namesakes: their 1990 demo was reviewed in the metal press, they won their heat of the Friday Rock Show competition on (BBC) Radio 1, and they supported DRI at McGonagles in Dublin. They also supported Slammer and Wolfsbane in Belfast and played regularly in Rosetta in Belfast and 5150 in Drogheda.
Their 6 song demo is excellent and it's surprising it never made it on to vinyl.
