Listen to their song 'Dance the night away'

Steve Lynch of BluescreenBluescreen were formed in August 2000 by songwriter Steve Lynch. Steve asked Sam Jackson to join after hearing him jamming on the piano at a party. Next came the bass stylings of John Burns. Finally, Steve met drummer Conor Donovan at a Ruby Sessions gig in Dublin, and so the band was formed. They began gigging around Dublin, playing anywhere and everywhere, and in the winter of that year they decided to record an album. Eerie Hour Studios in suburban Swords was chosen as the place to commit their sound to tape, and Fionan de Barra came on board (effectively the 5th band member) as producer. They emerged from the studio in the Spring of 2001 with an album they've entitled "Exit" (now available in Tower and Road Records). The track for download here - 'Dance the night away' - is the opening track of the 'Exit' album
