"We all play bass guitar/guitar/keyboards/mini-disc/samples and Crawford sings."
Brief Band History:
"After expecting to split after our 5th gig, we were suddenly asked if we'd like to release something on a new imprint for Fierce Panda; Livid Meerkat. We were amazed. We recorded "For Danny", "Seventyseven a" and "Undone" with Julian Standen at the desk and it just grew from there. It was all very strange. It eventually culminated in our debut album for Lo Recordings; "A Negative for Francis" which was a dedication to the late painter, Francis Bacon."
Mark: Durutti Column, Gary Peacock, Eberhard Weber, Cinidytalk

Crawford: Cardiacs, Firehose/Mike Watt, Charles Mingus, Stockhausen
Life changing albums?
Mark: Joy Division - 'Unknown Pleasures' - "because it was honest, the band had no concerns with anything other than the music."
