Upcoming Releases: A back catalogue album is currently in discussion.
Anything else you want to shout about: Well, the whole point of making the Waste of Space video was, it suddenly dawned on us that our first demo was 20 years old!! Bearing in mind that the original line up from back then are now scattered over the globe, we thought it be fun to all play in a lockdown style video. Derek Williams, a good friend from Norwich agreed to do the production from there.
Scally emigrated to Australia in late 2005 and was replaced by Chris Peters (the beardy one on the video). In September 2007, Steve left these shores to live in Greece (Rhodes). The band carried on as a four piece after that.
We were influenced by bands such as Rancid, G.B.H. and Discharge with a leaning toward the old Anarco-Punk scene and a strictly D.I.Y ethic.
The band featured members of ex-Norwich Bands, Revulsion, Sweet ‘n’ Innocent, How’s the J Mann, Chris & Daz also play in Liqueur, The UK’s leading Cure tribute act.
