The Reasons were a legendary ‘super-group’ comprised of members of even more celebrated 1970s Dublin punk bands. Founding members were Phil Byrne (vocals) and Kevin Helly (bass), both of Revolver, and Dave Moloney (drums) of The Vipers, and Pete Holidai (guitars / production) of The Radiators (from Space). Shortly afterward, Eamon Kenny (guitars) replaced Kevin Helly, with Phil taking up the bass.

A couple of years ago they got back together under The Reasons banner for Phil’s birthday, with Floyd Earl Crow joining on bass, and this led directly to recording sessions with producer Danton Supple (Coldplay / Morrisey / Suede / Elbow). The first fruit of these sessions is a full re-working and re-recording of that 1981 single Private World, being debuted at The Wild Duck gig. All attendees will get a limited-edition CD of the single!
