The Train Walkers

From: Tallaght, Dublin

Active: July 1988 - June 1990

Style: Rock/Indie



Formed by John Prendergast & Mark Willis, both ex Cliff Edge Panic. Original vocalist Paul Bolger (from Waterford) left in 1989. Mark Willis took over the vocal duties and Fintan Doyle joined as second guitarist, keeping the quartet format. The band made some memorable compilation appearances, recorded an excellent Dave Fanning session and were runners-up in the Carling/Hot Press finals in 1989. A single was planned for that same year but the recordings were judged unsatisfactory. Despite interest from Setanta Records, the band seemed to come to a halt.

In 2001 John Prendergast issued a prize-winning compilation CD of Train Walkers recordings as part of a degree course in media production. This CD (and a companion Cliff Edge Panic CD) was sold through a website which now appears to be defunct. Can John Prendergast or anyone else associated with these sites please get in touch.

The Train Walkers now have a myspace page with several videos showing just how good a band they were. See external links below.
