The Atrix

Legendary Dublin New Wave act, The Atrix, release their long awaited anthology, ‘Dublin 1979-1981’ tonight.

The Atrix formed in 1978, and came out of the same Dublin theatre/cabaret scene as Jim Sheridan, The Radiators, Neil Jordan, Agnes Bernelle, Peter Sheridan and The Virgin Prunes. The Atrix combined a strong theatrical element to quirky but memorable tunes, the most striking examples being the singles “The Moon Is Puce” and “Treasure on the Wasteland”.

They released its first single “The Moon is Puce” on Seamus O’Neill’s Mulligan label in late 1979 to modest acclaim in its local market. This first single was produced by Philip Chevron, then a member of The Radiators From Space and later of The Pogues. The band signed to Dave Dee’s DoubleDee Records label in 1980 and released the follow-up single “Treasure on the Wasteland” in 1980. It was produced by Midge Ure. They released ‘Procession’, their only album in 1981.

Their single, ‘Treasure on the Wasteland’ appeared on the now legendary ‘Just for Kicks’ compilation album, which also featured, among others, Berlin, DC Nein, Rocky DeValera & The Gravediggers, and, a then virtually unknown, U2.

The bands frontman, John Borrowman, tragically passed away in Copenhagen in 1998.
