In 1995, Jean Michel, Nono and Christian left their previous band, Seventeen. The 3 guys had already noticed Declan singing in pubs in Cork and were impressed, but the band didn’t get together then. The O’Shea brothers went to work in Euro Disney in France, but luckily on one of their home journeys the lads finally got together. Cyclefly was formed. At first the band was called Dogabone, and they released a EP in 1995 under this name. It was in 1997 that they changed their name to Cyclefly after being inspired by one of Declan’s paintings.

In 1999, Cyclefly released their debut album, Generation Sap and made their live debut at Whiskey on the Sunset Strip. In 2002 their second album, Crave, was released.
