Under-rated Belfast band formed in 1981 who moved to Liverpool in 1987 and released an LP on the local Probe Plus label. They had been writing and recording for several years before that but had suffered many lineup changes and were unstable. The move to Liverpool brought things into focus perhaps, and the LP was very well received in the press, but ironically the move also led to the band's demise as they were unable to make ends meet. They split in 1988 with some members returning to Belfast and some choosing to stay in Liverpool, the latter group including singer Noel Burke who then joined Echo & The Bunnymen during Ian McCullough's absense from the band in 1990-91. He appears on the Reverberation album (1991).
There was a brief live reunion in 2005 coinciding with the CD reissue which led to more offers and ultimately and somewhat unexpectedly a second album "Glypotheque", recorded by five of the originals members that made the debut LP 20 years earlier -- only Maurice Mulvenna is absent. Philip Freckleton switched to bass and Kevin O' Neill, who'd played in an early incarnation of the band, joined as lead guitarist. A third album "Bystanders" followed in 2012 on Probe Plus.
At least one unreleased track "Contemptible Bastard".
The full title of the CD reissue is "Love Me Love My Dogma (And Then Some)"
