There are at least 6 artists by this name: an band from Estonia; artist from San Fracisco, CA; the frontman of Fat Freddy’s Drop; a punk-pop trio from the north of England and an band from Belgium

Dallas were:
KRISTI KINDEL - vocals, synthesizers

TAUNO PÄÄSLANE - bass, guitar
IVIKA NOOP - keyboards
ALLAN AMBERG - drums
