Memories:
Formed around 1992 after a rather long hazy session at Anderton's and went on to rule the world, well Tamworth for a while anyway. Gained an instant following for crazy live shows with raw energy, this original line-up lasted roughly 1-2 years and in that time we left our mark on Tamworth before going our seperate ways, amazing times.

I remember the second gig we played at the Tamworth Arts Centre we headlined a 5 band show because the out of town band that was meant to headline, Strawberry Blond, bottled it so we did it and the place went crazy, people dancing on stage, packed house it was amazing. We had our first dressing room experience with free out of date booze which we went on to drink and then smash up the dressing room for which we were banned from playing there again, great memories.

Thanks to: Tom Anderton
