Fun days indeed!

NO SWEAT were an Irish rock band, active during the late 1980s and early 1990s. Originally going by the name STATESIDE and managed by none other than Louis Walsh, they are best remembered for their single ‘Heart And Soul’, which topped the Irish charts for two weeks in June 1989. The single was produced by DEF LEPPARD frontman Joe Elliott, who also helped them to secure a contract with London Records. The group had two further hits the following year with ‘Tear Down the Walls’ (#4) and ‘On the Edge’ (#11). 1990 also saw the release of their self-titled debut album, which was produced by Keith Olsen for Pogo Logo Corp. and recorded at Goodnight L.A. studio’s in Van Nuys, California, USA. Former KINGDOM COME drummer James Kottak features on the album before Ray Fean was in the band.

They supported THUNDER on their ‘Backstreet Symphony’ tour in 1990. And supported LITTLE ANGELS in Britain during May 1990. ‘Heart And Soul’ and ‘Tear Down the Walls’ were released as singles in the U.K. in late 1990 and early 1991, with both enjoying minor success. The former spent four weeks in the top 75, but never rose above #64, while ‘Tear Down the Walls’ peaked at #61.
