When Alex Simpson joined in 2004, they changed their name to Child Loses Arm.

The band members between 2003 and 2005 were:

Charlie Atkinson (vocals) [2003]
Andrew Candlish (guitar)
Grant Everatt (drums)
Jamie Mooney (vocals, bass)
Alex Simpson (vocals, guitar) [2004]

2006 to 2008

The band split in late 2005, but remained good friends. It seemed a shame to let the songs fade into the ether, so Jamie and Alex tried to keep the music alive by playing a few acoustic gigs together.

2009 to 2010

In 2009 Jamie recruited Shaneen Dawkins (The Creeks), former Child Loses Arm member Alex Simpson (Wobbly Bob) and Martyn Spencer (Ether 5 / Hear Something Else) to give the songs the performances they deserve.

Child Loses Arm are:

Jamie Mooney (vocals, acoustic)
Shaneen Dawkins (vocals, bass)
Alex Simpson (vocals, drums)
Martyn Spencer (vocals, lead guitar)

The band are now working hard writing new songs and reworking the older ones that Andy wrote. The first Child Loses Arm album will be released in the Autumn in 2010.
