Tick Tick

Tick Tick were a post-punk band formed in Middlesbrough UK in 1979. The original line-up consisted of Gary Widdowfield, Geoff Spence and Richard Sanderson. This group had the peculiar distinction of being mentioned in “Smash Hits” magazine as being the first band in Teesside to use a drum machine.

It was this group that recorded their first record, a 12” EP entitled “The Immortalisation of Tick Tick” in 1980.

Shortly after this the line-up was expanded by the addition of Ste Weatherall and Paul Fowler and went on to record the "My Swelling Heart" EP- finally released by Linear Obsessional in 2013.

This group played some high-profile concerts in the North East, including gigs supporting The Fall and Pink Military. Further line-ups followed, including a stint under the name "The Maid’s Neck" before finally calling it a day in 1982.
