I don't know anything about Route 101 but a clue to their identity may be found in the name of the label on which their two singles were released: F & M Records. I believe the 'F' and 'M' may be Morgan Fingleton, who played in school bands, etc before playing keyboards in Minor Detail. Route 101 were active towards the end of the decade. The singles were released in 1989-90 and they band was still giggin in early 1991. The second single is produced by (Dr) Paul Brewer, who worked freelance in Dublin recording studios during 1989-90.
Morgan Fingleton eventually secured a publishing contract with New York based ESP Management and moved to New York. He played in several bands in New York over several years before moving to Chicago.
If anyone can confirm Route 101 was his band, please get in touch.
