Biography

Did I hear someone whisper why "The Torpids"?. There are people who are lazy or who just like to sleep a lot. Im sure many can relate to this. If you can your a torpid. Some members of this band are very familiar to torpidility :). Not mentioning any names.

Jacinta had a present to record a song in a studio and I(Gary) wrote a riff that inspired me on wet and windy Irish day. We combined her present and my riff and recorded a demo of Tornadoes run. Since then we have been popping songs out of every corner of our musical and lyrical brains and Im sure one day you the reader will be able to share these songs with us.
