We all met at school and started playing together in 1977.  Varied influences from pre-punk (Marc Bolan, Roxy Music) and early punk (Sex Pistols, Clash, Damned). We split because Graham, Ben and Kim had to choose between university places or the band. Best and worst gigs are probably the same - Futurama - great event but played lousy.

Early songs included "Sending My Girl To Holloway" and "High On a Numbie".

However, times they were a changin' and after playing at the 'Futurama Festival' in Leeds on Saturday 8th September 1979 with 'Public Image Limited' & 'Joy Division' they called it a day after one last gig at the 'Zip Club' in Hull.

Their epitaph was etched in vinyl  with an appearance on the compilation album "Music For The Upper Classes To Do Something To".
