Five Go Down To The Sea?

Five Go Down To The Sea?

Profile:
Post-punk group from Cork,Ireland.Donnelly & Dineen (both ex Nun Attax) met guitarist Mick Stack in 1981 and began to play together. They added cellist Una Ni Chanainn who they'd seen performing in a play with Mick Lynch (of the Mean Features). This 2 guitar and cello band evolved into Five Go Down To The Sea in 1982 with another ex Nun Attax Smelly on drums. When they moved to the UK in 1983, Una stayed behind. They released the "Knot A Fish" EP on Kabuki in 1983, the "Glee Club" EP on Abstract in 1984 and "Singing In Braille" on Creation in 1985, a unique trio of recordings which are highly recommended. When the band split in 1985, Mick Stack left for the USA, Smelly withdrew from live music and returned to Cork, while Donnelly & Dineen formed Beethoven.
