The Hootenennys released just one single, featuring two instrumentals "Fiona" and "6.10 Special". They eventually became a four-piece and changed their name to The Creatures. Guitarist Jim Dalton joined the Johnny Flynn Showband and was replaced by Brian Harris. Bobby Kelly joined The Chosen Few, then The Greenbeats and later The Sands. Liam McKenna, Frank Boylan and Ray McDonald continued as The Creatures.
