Things started to come together when Peter was playing drums on some of Terry's tracks.
They enjoyed working together and some gigs followed, but the band line-up was not quite right for the material.

At this point, after a 20 year gap, Keith Forbes (Reddog productions) a seasoned tour manager and old friend of Terry's, got back back in touch and is now part of the team. He introduced Dwight who at the time was in he's own band (he joined after some persuasion).
Dwight and Peter soon struck up an incredible rapport, forming an unstoppable rhythm section.
The hunt for the right singer was on: an old friend helping during rehearsals while the band tightened it up. A few people tried out, but was proving really hard to find the right person. As luck would have it, an old friend of Dwight's, Rob Stitch got in touch. Rob has been performing for years but was between bands so came down to have a go; his dynamic personality and soaring vocals were the missing link.
The name was chosen because it sums up the vibe of the band, forthright and no messing with a southern sound.
There are so many influences driving the music it doesn't really fit a genre but the raw power is undeniable. Now that all members are writing material together, the identity is becoming stronger.
