Formed after attending a garage punk night called ‘Bomp’ hosted by The Cryptics at venues in St Helier, Jersey Channel Islands. The club night made a huge impact on the islands growing music scene in the same vain as the influential Dirty Water Club in London.
The group began jamming as an instrumental trio in the summer of 2003 taking influence from 50s rock'n'roll and blues, 60s psychedelic garage, punk and the late 70s post punk movement, funk, ska and the darker/noisier side of the 80s, hardcore, 90s dance and guitar music but soon moved towards the more experimental electronic sounds of Sheffield as well as the krautrock explosion.
Due to a lack of opportunity in Jersey, the band decided to move to Brighton and began touring persistently throughout the UK and Europe gaining a steady fan base in the UK, France, Italy, Germany, Poland, Lithuania and Sweden.
They have 2 EP's under their belts and have had songs released on a number of compilations. Repulsion Seminar received 8/10 reviews and saw the band mature on a massive level giving them much media and label attention.
Their debut single ‘Voltaire’ was produced by James Aparicio (Nick Cave, Mogwai) and mixed/mastered by Robert Harder (Brian Eno, The Slits) and was released on The Playground Records in November 2010 and re-released on 7" on Movement-2 Records in 2014. The band are currently based in Brighton working on their debut album and hope to release it in 2015.
