The band was formed 33 years ago. In school I (Koefte) wasn’t a great student and music was my only interest. It felt real to me, something I could truly connect with. I played drums as a kid and sang. My friends and I would go to a few festivals and shows, and see bands performing and that was when I realised that that was what I wanted to do. So, we got a band together and started playing out in the street at first. Our songs were a mixture of shuffle and faster tempo rock/psychobilly music. As we kept performing I found that that this was the only job I wanted to do. We got some help from these youth centres that looked for bands to perform occasionally, so we’d get a space to practice and sometimes perform as well, to really practice what we were doing.
In terms of influences, it was anything really, rock, rockabilly, punk, metal. Anything that felt real to us at the time and still feels real to us now.
