STYLE.

Punk perfect for anyone who likes going mental..

BIO.

We formed in late 2019 through sheer boredom and were big fans of punk music before starting the band. We decided to write a song whilst pissed one night and we came up with ‘Elegy Written in a Tesco Carpark’. We released it ourselves along with ‘Shit or Bust’ and people seemed to like them and got in contact with Raw Power Management soon after. Everything started happening for us and then 2020 hit with covid which put all live stuff on hold, so we knuckled down writing. This year we’ve been blessed with some exciting festivals like Reading and Leeds and Neighbourhood weekender and did our first sold out headline show in London which was chaos.

We’re looking forward to a bunch of shows in 2022 and getting out there properly.

Punkband are Toby Ergatoudis (vocals) and Alex Cook (Music) from Hersham.

SHARE WITH US AN INTERESTING ANECDOTE ABOUT ONE OF YOUR SONGS.

24 Hours before the ‘businessman’ video shoot, Toby cut his hand open in an abandoned bungalow and lost movement in 3 of his fingers from torn tendons. He had surgery the day after. That’s why he has a cast on in the video.
