Its six permanent members are:
Reverend Cal-Mag Boron
Prior to forming, Ampism and Moss played for many years in the post-rock group Bemsha Swing. More lately, Ampism and Sultan had collaborated with Dan Jones (End The Agony,Jovian) under the name Daguerreotype. Around the same time, Spiceberg, Reverend and Dr were discovered jamming anonymously under a railway arch in Brighton. Bolide was born when these divergent identities decided to play together.
Originally coming together under the name Bolide Awkwardstra for a one-off performance at the Colour Out of Space festival in 2007, the group has so far failed to disband. Somewhere along the way, it was decided that awkwardness and poor spelling should no longer be a barrier to progress.
