Help me put names to these bands/songs

I am missing band or song information on the following pages:

Tension – Is that track called funk?

The Idiots – Demo Live Track

Tension. I know I know them, I’m pretty sure they are written on the DAT box which is back in Dublin, but I’m drawing a complete blank on the name for three tension tracks.

    Third Donnybrook Garage song was called “Swamp Thing” – the last reaslly short one with the Irish spoken intro was actually called “Roastbeef Motel”

      Patrick, The girl in question did not marry your brother, I am fairly sure of that!

      I never recorded SUNBEAR, and had I, the band would surely feature here. I remember the name though, as in it rings a bell, a kind of vibe bell, kind of conjures up a memory of one of those “We got to get to that gig man” things buzzing around town. Or somehow or other, there is some vague memory of sunbear, sunbear, sunbear, being repeated in some space where I was spending time. Reading up now – ah, of course. the Joe Chester connection.

        myself and martin from sunbear are in a new band with tony (from fkos) called tin charm and we have an album coming out soon. we still pal around with joe (he recorded an album for us when we were in ruby tailights) its a pity you didnt get to record sunbear alright., we played regularly with the idiots pet lamb female hercules, luggage, in motion. there was a great music scene in dublin those days. really enjoying hearing some of the stuff you have on here. nice one.
