Street Talk

From: IRL

Active:

Style: Pop / New Wave

Lineup:

Bio:

New wave pop-rock with reggae stylings and a strong lead singer; the debut single "1-2-3" was a hit in Ireland spending 10 weeks in the charts, peaking at #19. It was described in Hot Press as pop reggae, with both The Police and Men Without Hats namechecked as reference points. The dutch issue on Rainbow came in a picture sleeve showing a black group(!). Occasional Average White Band style funk workouts too.

In his book "Kill Bono", Neil McCormick portrays Gerry Moore as one of the most talented - and undervalued - artists working in Ireland at the time.
