When they started out a couple of years back, things were handy enough for them as they supported Demented Are Go soon after getting together, had a nice run of local and not so local gigs as well as being asked by the head honcho at Raucous Records to contribute a couple of tracks for a proposed compilation (not sure if this came out ? is coming out ? or has been shelved ?), not too shabby for a debut although they hit a bit of a speed bump after about a year when they parted company with the singer. It was Caroline aka Caz, who rumour has it, likes Smirnoff...a lot ! was drafted in to front the band, the unsubstantiated story being that they met her after a particularly intense session on the piss and whilst talking, couldn't help but notice she sounded like Lux with a mike jammed half way down his throat and a large styrofoam cup in there somewhere too.
