directory of local bands
We formed after a split of local Punk Band 'Red Letter Day' in 2003. After a few early line up changes the band have now had a constant line up since late 2004 of Razor (main vox and guitar), Wolfie (bass and shouting), Ben (backing voc and guitar) and Elvis (shatners bassoon, drums). We have released an album 2007 after recording and mixing sessions 2005/2006 called 'the gong show' distributed by zip records of L.A.

We have played at 'Bring out your dead festival' in london, twice at 'Misery of Sound' in blackpool along with many other gigs across the U.K. Our singles 'Jesusphobia' and 'twisted love song' have been played repeatedly at goth clubs across Europe and United States. We are soon to be releasing a new album with tracks from our current set list, Jesusphobia, Suicide Lullaby, Exit Existence, Kanada, Enough is Enough, Crestfallen and many more.

Our Influences stem from Pixies, Damned, Hendrix, Metallica, Cardiacs, Killing Joke, Bauhaus, Nirvana, Siouxsie, Queens of the Stone Age, The Fall, Sonic Youth, Dead Kennedys, Muse, Cure, Ramones, Motorhead, NMA, Sisters of Mercy, Radiohead, My Bloody Valentine, Adam and the Ants, White Stripes, Crass, Joy Division, Faith No More, PIL, Lords of the New Church, Editors, Stranglers, Interpol, Ruts, Frank Zappa, Spinal Tap
