Canvas of life...

Minor Detail is an Irish group formed in 1983 in Blacrock by the brothers John and Willie Hughes.

We know very little about this group except that they will have produced only a few titles.

Few titles including the excellent "Canvas of life", with its sound so typical of the early 80s.

In 1991, John Hughes discovered during a hearing a group of which he was to become the manager and which would be one of the major groups of the 90s, namely ... The Corrs.

To discover or rediscover...

Tracks :

1983 ... a HUGE first title which turns directly into global success. Surely one of the biggest hits of the early 80s on the UK side

1983 ... a second sumptuous title, all in finesse. And in a style completely outside the standards of the time

1983 ... we already stick a little more to the sound of the moment. A group that will remain little known and yet will have provided titles with more than certain quality

1983 ... a meteoric career which will nevertheless leave in the musical history of the 80s several titles of very good quality

1983 ... a particularly inspired track which shows the full extent of their talent. And there is talent !

1983 ... another particularly successful foray into the Intimist. Too bad the group's discography stops at a single album ...
