Where on earth to begin! Well originally Joe, Phil and former member Matt started to write some songs, the idea was that they’d write one just to prove they could! But then they wrote 5 more and decided maybe it was time to play them to people. Originally set to open the event, attention at the Lomax was very much on what was then known as ‘Red Hot Winter’ don’t ask them why…they still don’t know, and the band went to do a 3 piece headline acoustic set, where they played 5 acoustic originals and 3 covers. It was messy, it was drunken but it was a catalyst to write more, work harder and gig, gig gig!
‘Blood, Sweat and Kimchi’, a 4 track EP was recorded with band friend Jose Ibanez, it was warmly received by critics, and set a marker for the band going ahead.
The Band began working with Sugarhouse who decided that ‘Real World’ should be the next release, recorded over two days, Real World is still regarded as one of the strongest in the setlist, prompting a lyric video and number one slots on various local independent radio shows.
So to 2017, after Matt had moved on Shan and James Rowan, formerly of Liverpool punks Last Reserves, and they set about writing new music, but before they had chance to do so, James left for University in Leeds, and we are proud to say graduated! Dave and Jim completed the line up and ‘Leave it All behind’ was written, demo’d and recorded inside a year, bringing together some of the strongest bunch of songs the guys had ever written!
Unfortunately Shan moved on and Joel Hughes of Burn the Yearbook, and WreckIt took the seat behind the skins.
The future…they guess thats up to you!
