Microdisney

You might need to ask an elder about Microdisney. They were a distinctly Irish slice of the ‘80s –
Cork’s answer to Something Happens and Ireland’s answer to Prefab Sprout, or something like
that. Formed in Cork, in 1980, by Cathal Coughlan and Sean O’Hagan, Microdisney are best
known for their track Town to Town and were signed to both Virgin and Rough Trade.
They chronicled the ‘80s as lived in worn denim and grim bedsits, they supported The Fall.
Coughlan and O’Hagan went on to form Fatima Mansions and The High Llamas, respectively. Vox
Magazine vol. 5 in the early eighties stated that “their behaviour is often mistaken as ‘uncool’
amongst the more hip dublin punter come intellectual” Let’s hope they cut the mustard in the
capital tonight.
