St. Vitus Dance were a Liverpool band by way of Belfast. They released their debut album “Love Me Love My Dogma” on Probe Plus in 1987 and it features one of my favorite tracks “Horse Sense.” The band consisted of Noel Burke (vocals), Haydn Boyle (keyboards), Maurice Mulvenna (bass), Philip Freckleton (guitar), Damien Magee (guitar), and Peter Hesketh (drums). You may remember Noel having a brief stint as frontman for Echo and the Bunnymen, replacing Ian McCulloch for the 1990 album, “Reverberation.” Read an interview with Noel Burke here.
In May 2005 a reconstituted St. Vitus Dance reappeared (including most of the original line-up). They played some shows and released a proper cd version of the “Dogma” album (with bonus tracks). A new album “Glypotheque” (also on Probe Plus) was released last year.
