About Microdisney

[source:Wikipedia.org]

Microdisney was an Irish rock band formed in Cork in 1980.[2] It was founded and led by the songwriting team of Cathal Coughlan (keyboards, vocals) and Sean O'Hagan (guitar).[3] They reached the Irish top 40 with the 1987 single "Town to Town",[4] and were one of the few Irish bands of the 1980s to achieve international success.[5]

After their 1988 breakup, O'Hagan and Coughlan formed separate bands, the High Llamas and the Fatima Mansions, respectively.[2] In 2018, Microdisney reunited for the first time in thirty years, performing live in Dublin and London.[1] In February 2019, they played their last shows in Dublin and Cork.[6] The members of Microdisney were awarded an IMRO/NCH Trailblazer Award, given to "culturally important" Irish albums (in this instance, for The Clock Comes Down The Stairs) in 2018.[6] Both members remain musically active.
