The Groove played covers as well as their own material and had a bit of a 'mod revival' following, though the band itself were not part of that movement. The debut single was part of a prize won an a Saturday Morning RTE show (does anyone remember what that was called?). The rest of the prize consisted of an opening support slot for David Bowie's concert at Slane Castle that summer . There must be a tape of that out there somewhere? Also on the bill were Big Country and Aslan. They recorded at least one 3 track demo tape in 1988, described by Hot Press as using a "building, brassy approach". Brendan Wallace was replaced by Clive Cheevers. The band split in 1989.
Wallace and the Healy's had previously been in The Outfit.
