Toasted Heretic was an Irish rock group who attracted a cult following in the late 1980s and 1990s. They were founded in Galway, where singer and lyricist Julian Gough was studying English and philosophy.[1]

They made the top ten of the Irish Singles Chart in 1992 with "Galway and Los Angeles", written by Julian Gough about a chance meeting with Sinéad O'Connor in the entrance to Raidió Teilifís Éireann's Dublin studios.[2][3]

They performed at the Féile Festival in 1992, where Gough tried to steal a large Warner Music banner and was ejected by security guards. The band split up not long afterwards.[2]
