Brief Biography (Courtesy of the Artistís site, 2005).
...The band has been in existence for over 30 years though the name only dates back a mere 14 years, earlier names being in dubious taste if not slanderous, offensive or merely disgraceful. The band has been as an organism, with changes in direction resulting from and in changes in personnel. Each past member has left a legacy: a tune, a song, an amplifier or a tale to be told all of which are cherished..." - Colin Johnstone
