We got together in the summer of 2004. We are based in Leeds/Wakefield and most of the band has been in other local bands before playing various venues in Leeds, Bradford and Wakefield. We have a traditional set-up (Vocals, Guitar, Bass and Drums) and are trying to focus our efforts into writing and playing our own music. With all of us having varied but similar tastes in music (and trashy 80s movies!) there are plenty of ideas being thrown into the songs that we are playing. We play all our own songs and each member contributes to writing new material.
