Untitled[edit]

This article while factual needs to be organized as a proper Wikipedia article. To start with, there are no references and there is only one section. Plus, the lyrics dispersed throughout the article are likely inappropriate. co94 September 2006

It needs some clarification on its data also. What is this album "Eat The Cheese"? It is not mentioned anywhere else, nor on official, neither non-(or semi-)official pages. 195.228.39.215 12:31, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

Session Personnel[edit]

Who played piano on the hit record of I Don't Like Mondays? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.151.21.224 (talk) 15:21, 3 December 2007 (UTC)

The simple answer is the group's pianist, Johnnie Fingers, did.

Sure would be great if someone would add a "band members" section. Ebw343 (talk) 04:05, 20 August 2009 (UTC) ebw343
