Bangor Wales' Fay Ray, named after photographer William Wegman's dog, debuted in 1980 with the 7" single "Family Affairs" (Surey Sound Records) and three live tracks on a 101 Live Letters compilation. They signed to Elektra/Warner Brothers and released "Contact You" in 1982. The record did not sell. A follow-up was recorded but the label pulled the plug and kept the masters. The record was not released and the band broke up. There is a rumor that "Contact You" will be released on CD next year along with bonus tracks.
