About The Fountainhead

The Fountainhead were formed in 1984 by Pat O'Donnell & Steve Belton, a new wave/techno-rock duo who had been gigging together for a few years. They self-released their self-titled debut EP in 1984. They followed with a number of E.P.s and singles and the albums "Burning Touch" in 1986 and "Voice of Reason" in 1988.

The Fountainhead were a Great band (capital G) and were better than Simple Minds, Tears for Fears and others of that era..and beyond. How do bands like this become obscure so easily ?? Are any of their CDs still available ANYwhere ?

Is there any place in Dublin that would stock their CDs?

I saw The Fountainhead in Dublin in 1986 in a club that looked like a cave on the inside. They put on a great show. Bought they album they had out at the time with the tune "Feel it Now" on it. Great album!

I saw The Fountainhead at Slane 1986 the year Queen headlined, they were the first band on followed by The Bangles. The Fountainhead were pretty good. I remember they played "Business Enterprise"? and other familiar songs.
