Terminus 5

From: Belfast

Active: 1985-

Style: Heavy Metal



Formed by school friends Pat McCorry (AKA Zak Speed) and Gary Caulfield (AKA Murph Shea) at St Malachy's College in Belfast in 1985. They gigged around Belfast during 1985-86 and were signed by local independent label Red Hot Records (apparently backed by Good Vibrations but probably not the same Red Hot who released two Auto Da Fe singles in 1984, manfactured by Stoic) who released their debut LP 'The Killer Breed' in 1986.

The band moved base to Portrush. Baz O'Hara left in late 1986, replaced by another ex- St Malachy's pupil, multi-instrumentalist Sean 'Nemesis' Quinn, on rhythm guitar and keyboards.

In 1987 they signed to Diamond Discs and released their second album 'When The Shit Hits The Fan', and undertook a 9-date tour of Ireland with support act Baagock, an all girl band based in Bangor.
