The Sweat

From: Belfast

Active: 1978-1982




Powerpop band led by Clive Culbertson, ex No Sweat. The band was signed to Dave Dee's Double D label and issued a hard to find LP which is well worth tracking down. After the band folded, Clive issued several solo singles and worked as a producer, opening his own recording studio.

The Japanese reissue label 1977 Records has reissued all the bands recordings. To coincide with these reissues, The Sweat will reform for 2 performances in Japan in November 2007.
