Brendan O'Hare (born 16 January 1970) has, amongst other things, been the drummer in Teenage Fanclub from 1990 until early 1994, Telstar Ponies from 1994-1996 and a member and collaborator of Mogwai on their first album "Young Team".

O'Hare joined Teenage Fanclub in 1990, in time to play on about half of their debut album, A Catholic Education. He split from the group after completing the tour for the Thirteen album and joined Telstar Ponies, although he left during the recording of their second album. He was a member of Mogwai for approximately a year. He was described by the NME as Teenage Fanclub's "Monkey Without Portfolio". This prompted the track "With Portfolio" on Mogwai's debut album, Young Team. O'Hare was allegedly kicked out of Mogwai for talking during a performance by Arab Strap leading to a fight with other members of the band. Despite this, there appears to have been no hard feelings between O'Hare and Arab Strap as O'Hare later featured on their double A-side 1998 release, "Here We Go"/"Trippy", contributing to the twelve-minute song, "Trippy".

O'Hare also released a trilogy of experimental albums under the name of Fiend. These albums featured a handful of recordings involving other members of Telstar Ponies, predominantly Gavin Laird, who he later formed Macrocosmica with.

In addition to his work with Macrocosmica and as Fiend, he worked closely with Dave Barker (formerly of Glass Records, Paperhouse and Creation) who ran the God Bless record label (issuing the sole album by Thurston Moore's 'Foot' project) and was part of the electro based band, Liminal. In 2006, he rejoined Teenage Fanclub for shows in London, Glasgow and Barcelona at which the band played their Bandwagonesque album in its entirety.
