Shriekback

Profile:
English post-punk band from Kentish Town, London, founded in 1981 by Dave Allen (5) with Barry Andrews and Carl Marsh. In 1984 Martyn Barker joined the band as Drummer and Percussionist after having toured with them and played on various sessions before.
After the release and touring of 1985's Oil And Gold Marsh left for good to start a solo career. Before recordings started for Shriekback's attempt in producing a successful Pop album (Go Bang!) Allen left, thus leaving Andrews as the only original member and main songwriter.
Dave Allen re-joined briefly in 1992 and for 2003's fan financed mini-album Having A Moment. The later also involved Carl Marsh who returned to the band again as guest for Life In The Loading Bay and finally full-time since 2015 again.
