Formerly known as Juniper, who had two Irish
chart hits in 1998 with Weatherman and The World is Dead, the band's
line-up and sound has changed along with its name. When the original
singer left the band, gifted crooner Paul Noonan took up the mantle.
The newly born Bell X1 retreated to the remote valleys of Wales
where, under the guidance of Crowded House's Nick Seymour (soon
to become the Puff Daddy of Irish Nu-Rock), they made their debut
record. BellX1 are available for gigs from July 2001 on.
