The Bluebells


During their short time period together in the first ’80s, the Bluebells (songwriter Robert “Bobby Bluebell” Hodgens [created on June 6, 1959] [guitar], Kenneth McClusky [created on February 8, 1962] [vocals/harmonica], Dave McCluskey [created on January 13, 1964] [drums], Russell Irvin [guitar] [changed by Craig Gannon (created on July 30, 1966)], and Lawrence Donegan [bass] [changed by Neil Baldwin]) produced handful of music — several singles, the majority of which arrived using one EP — but that’s not proportional to the grade of their music. Like fellow Scots Aztec Camcorder, the Bluebells crafted impeccable, jangly acoustic guitar pop, just with better melodies and more powerful hooks. Two of their singles (“I’m Dropping” and “Youthful in mind”) hovered around the low reaches from the U.K. TOP in 1984, however they soon split up, leaving a little, but amazing, body of function. David McCluskey and his sibling, Ken, shaped a folk duo. Robert Hodgens shaped Up. Craig Gannon briefly stuffed set for bassist Andy Rourke within the Smiths on tour, after that stayed as another live guitarist; he became a member of Adult Net after becoming fired through the Smiths in 1986.
