Dave! Due to professional obligations elsewhere, David leaves the band.

1992

Dayglo Fishermen - Magic Organ photo shoot

After a short break, Dayglo Fishermen begin writing and recording a new album. Tension is high between the band members, and the tone and lyrics of the songs are dark and edgy.

In an attempt to cool things off, a publicity photo shoot takes place.


April
1992

Magic Organ cover artwork

The new album, named Magic Organ, is released.

Immediately afterwards, Eamonn and Sean leave the band.

Peter Fothergill and Richard Burton begin work on What the Hell

Peter and Richard are the only remaining members of Dayglo Fishermen. Considering the situation as a new beginning, and feeling very positive, the two begin work on a new album.


September
1992

What the Hell cover artwork

Dayglo Fishermen proudly release their new album, What the Hell. It receives excellent reviews, both locally and nationally.


November
1992

The earliest known Dayglo Fishermen bootleg album

A bootleg tape containing songs from all of Dayglo Fishermen's previous albums is discovered in Berkshire. It's origins are traced to the Sussex coast.

After careful thought, the band decide against legal action on this occasion.


January
1993

Keep to the Path cover artwork

A feeling of nostalgia overcomes the band, and Peter and Richard re-record and remix some of Dayglo Fishermen's earlier tracks. The album, Keep to the Path, is the result. It is released immediately to a curious public.


March
1993

Peter Fothergill and Richard Burton in a frigid Northumbrian forest

In a dank and dim forest, Dayglo Fishermen brave the frigid Nothumbrian weather and stage a photo shoot. The eminent Scottish artist, J. Lorne Inglis, is the photographer.

Back in the studio, the band begin recording another album.


April
1993

Horoscope cover artwork

The recording is going well. The two-track single, Horoscope, is released as a teaser for the full album, scheduled shortly.


May
1993

In preparation for the release of the new album, Dayglo Fishermen perform a gig at Club Energy in Woolwich, London. It's a trancy, smokey affair, with a relaxed and appreciative audience. The eminent scottish artist J. Lorne Inglis appears as a guest artist, and performs a moving trumpet solo in a kilt.

Richard Burton and J. Lorne Inglis Back in the studio, the eminent scottish artist J. Lorne Inglis is invited to write a couple of songs for the new album. He makes a good effort, but the songs lack the quality and professionalism required for a Dayglo Fishermen album. The songs are dropped.

J. Lorne Inglis becomes bitter and hostile, threatening to sue Dayglo Fishermen for the most ridiculous of reasons. Peter and Richard are initially shocked, but soon they laugh at the amazing unprofessionalism of the situation.

J. Lorne Inglis' odd behaviour is set to continue for many years.


July
1993

The Dayglo Fishermen cover artwork

Finally, after unforeseen delays, the new album, simply titled The Dayglo Fishermen, is released. Public reaction is swift and positive.

Motivated by such an amazing response, the band begin work on the next album immediately.


September
1993

Animate cover artwork

The new album, titled Animate, is completed. Although the Dayglo Fishermen are proud of the new material, they decide not to release it. At least for now, anyway.


Christmas
1993

After two years, Dayglo Fishermen play the Moot Hall, Hexham once again. It's a very festive concert, complete with an on-stage Christmas tree. Sean Wills returns as a guest artist, this time playing his vintage synthesiser. J. Lorne Inglis reprises his role as a kilt-wearing trumpet player.

The press reviews the following day have nothing but praise for the band's stunning performance.
