Real Mayonnaise formed as a trio in 1976 led by Dave Sullivan AKA Skully. They had a punky sound early on and by 1980 were a 'futuristic' synth band with a real rhythm section a la Tubeway Army and Kraftwerkian manmachine vocals. Their demos were played on local radio but they never released anything and split in 1982. They reformed briefly mid-decade, recording one single produced by Ger O'Leary.
Dave Rudd died in Saudi Arabia where he had gone as part of his apprenticeship training. His replacement was Paul Moore.
Skully formed The Chapterhouse with Ann Redmond of Porcelyn Tears and later fronted Metisse. Jerry Buckley was also in Denis & The Dinmakers and The 3355409s
