The band was formed around 1980 at a South London High school by bass player Scrome and drummer George, who had a few friends try out on vocals, but eventually Scrome's class mate Ken was asked to join. Initial gigs in Mitcham, Carshalton & Sutton were played as a 3 piece, until John (also from the same school) joined on guitar.
The first release, around 1983, was a cassette only release, record live at the famous 100 club supporting the UK Subs, by which time only John & Ken were still in the line up. A couple of these tracks (Outside & Let it burn) made it onto the first vinyl release 'Stronger Than Before', which was released in 1986.
The group played many gigs with the legendary RAC band Skrewdriver.
