From: Bray

Active: 1984-90

Style: Rockabilly/Psychobilly



"Spellbound was formed in 1986 by brothers Frankie and Adrian Hayes, who came from Bray, Co Wicklow, 15 miles south of Dublin City. Unlike other Irish bands of their time, Spellbound decided to head directly to mainland Europe, where their 1988 debut album Mystical Madness was very well received and notched up many thousands in sales (amazingly, that album was never released in their home country). The boys blazed a brief trail across the rockabilly and psychobilly festivals of Germany and Scandanavia before, it seemed, vanishing back into the 'Hellfire' woods of County Wicklow"--bio excerpt taken from the excellent www.spellbound.ie website.

Spellbound reformed in 2003 with ex members of Shark Bait and The Kroozers and released a CD on Raucous ("A Fistful of Spells" -- see website for details).
