Bio:

Formed by Dave Finnegan (ex Boneshakers), Shark Bait were highly rated but the band split (acrimonious, apparently) when Finnegan landed a role in the godawful Commitments film. They left no recordings beside a few compilation appearances though they recorded demos in 1985-86 and 1987. They appeared on RTE Television on both 'Visual Eyes' and 'TV Ga Ga' (anyone got tapes?). After completing the movie, Finnegan hastily convened a band to record some Shark Bait songs released under the name Scared Stiff. He later fronted a Commitments band (one of many).

Shark Bait finally released their debut album in June 2012.

Not to be confused with the San Francisco band whose debut LP "Feed Our Frenzy" (Gladys Pearce GPR01) came out in 1988.
