Bio:

When Revolver broke up, Philip Byrne and Kevin Helly had several songs they wished to record. Pete Holidai of the Radiators also had a song he wished to record.

A group was assembled for a one off recording session one weekend in 1979 at Lombard Studios in Dublin. Also present were Dave Evans (AKA The Edge) of U2, Dave Moloney (ex Vipers), Bill Morley (ex Revolver) and keyboard player Gaby Smyth, who'd played piano on the Vipers single. This one-off studio band was dubbed The Reasons.

Two of these tracks were later released in 1981 (with incomplete credits) under the name Teen Commandments, Philip Byrne's current band.

Gaby Smyth is now (one of) U2's accountants.
