Formation

We've been friends for a while and a few years ago we started playing in a band fronted by Jefferson Burrows called Electric Toad. Whilst we were waiting for the others to finish their drinks/smokes so we could jam, the three of us had a little play and thought it sounded loose enough to give it another go outside of ToadTime. Our first gig was at a day care centre where Felicity Groom works.
