Toxic Waste (3)

Profile:
The band formed in 1982 after inspiration from the Crass gig at the Anarchee Centre in Belfast. Featuring Phil on bass, Patsy on vocals, Grub on drums and Marty on guitar they wanted to take the DIY and anti-establishment ethos of punk one step further. Originally from the Newtownards area, they played their first gig at the West Winds Roadhouse in the same year, and regularly played around Bangor, Belfast and the Ards area for the next two years, occupying the same scene as the band Stalag 17. In 1984 they moved to Belfast and were joined by second vocalist Roy Wallace. They gigged with Conflict (2) in the Manhattan Club which resulted in them doing a number of recordings for Conflict (2) label Mortarhate Records.

They toured Europe twice before they eventually split in 1986. Roy Wallace released Belfast in 1987, performing with Deno and Gary from Dirt (3) to re-record old Toxic Waste tracks (as well as previously unreleased tracks). Marty and Roy used their experience from their time in Toxic Waste to form Bleeding Rectum. The band was revived briefly in 1991 for a benefit tour, with Deno from Dirt (3) on female vocals.
