A Barber, two Engineers, and two Techies walk into a venue. Their high voltage rock erupts and they leave a mighty crater in their wake.

Way back in the late 90s, Ryan was drumming in the successful Reading 3-piece, Private Idaho, where he met Matt who auditioned as a replacement guitar player and right away nailed ‘the sound’.
When The Idaho disbanded in 2007, Matt and Ryan went in search of members for a new project and soon found Barney the bass player. The new, as-yet-unnamed three piece began writing songs in early 2008, and they reached out to Ed in 2009 to help fill out the sound who added his love for instrumental music to the band’s creative pool.
The four-piece wrote and recorded 3 demo tracks; sadly, before they could start gigging Barney left for pastures new. Worthy of of a Spinal Tap story, the search for a new bass player began, with the band picking up Dan on keyboards and vocals along the way.
Mike joined as the permanent bass player in June 2014 and the rock steady five-piece have been performing and growing their 90 minute catalogue of songs in a flurry of creativity.
They have released two records, and they are already writing a third.
