Style: Indie Pop

Lineup :

Bio:

Risky Businessformed in Skerries, Co.Dublin, in 1985 as a trio by Dave McGloughlin, Clive Hannon and Myles Lally. They became a quartet in 1968 with the addition of Tara 'Taz' Fernandes. The band were active on the Dublin scene for a number of years. Initially their relatively perky indie pop guitar sound was slightly at odds with the somewhat bad tempered lead vocal. A track ("This Is The Way") appeared on the Comet 3 tape in 1988. The band entered a 'Search For A Star' type competition and reached the Grand Final, which was held near Drogheda in 1988. DK Mountain of The Pink Hurts stood in for Fernandes on this occasion.

A second track on another compilation (anyone know which comp?). They split circa 1989.

Risky Business reformed in 2007 with additional members and continue to perform to this day.
