Years Active

198? – 1988


Dean Marshall (bass / vocals)
Dave Bottomley (guitar)
Dave Meginson (drums)

Rhondo (guitar)


Heavy metal band based in Bilton, just east of Hull. Their only recording – aside from two fairly obscure compilation appearances (see below) – appears to be their 1986 three-track demo tape, still highly regarded among metal completists and well worth a listen if you can manage to find a copy. As far as we can tell, the band split in 1988.

Bassist and frontman Dean Marshall later (1991) joined London-based glam metal outfit The Tattooed Love Boys. Drummer Dave Meginson would go on to play with acclaimed local rock band Artisan, and currently drums with Beverley-based covers band Bad Dog.
