Punk / metal bands from Sheff between 1986 - 1996

Recommended Posts

all my old mates were in all the classic unsigned late 80s / early 90s punk / metal bands, heres a list, plus theres other bands ive been to see etc too, not a definitive list, but still very interesting to read and remenisce if you were part of the scene between those years..........all these bands normally get missed in books and history write ups on the sheffield scene so i thought id right the wrong :)

 

also a few indie / folky / dancey / traveller bands too

I've updated the list with as much info as i can remember all the bands i've added info on i've made bold

 

dog soldier - kev became a p/t lecturer at sheff uni..

G.G.F - john (singer) has some merry go rounds n kids rides i think....

bad blood / face first were the same band they just swapped instruments and renamed themselves ( they not truth decay toured with government issue on the UK tour and crashed their van, hence the next GI album being called crash!)

those three bands split up early 90's and one member from each formed

truth decay which i joined in 93 (i think?!)

 

bastion

systematic annexe (my first ever gig, back in 1986 at the hallamshire hotel, they also featured on a motorhate comp album)

Moral justice

the bland (from chesterfield - went to a party once at theres, thats when i first met jools, see the dwarf and a clipboard man thread)

deathtrash - murray fenton is in the ****wits now

goodbye toulouse (jools was the roadie)

amnesia

slopdosh bobar and ivan crump - i've still got their demo, you came to wath and saw em with us didn't you??

midnight choir?

muzzle club / bendy monsters - bendy monsters still exist i think...

bad taste

radiacs

bedlam choir

lilac confusion

human perogrative

plague dogs

corpse grinders - a couple of em went on to form WORM, who still exist to this day...

slbc psychoterrorism research unit

media premonition

FCS (F*** City S*******) - moses is still around

durango 95

ed 209

blind mole rat - became spitboy didn't they?

astrids

food

various vegetables - signed to warp did a single and promptly split up

well next time your back in sheffield if you come on a weekend most of the newer punks will be at the doven rainbow.... unless theres bands playing,

 

this sunday most of the bands are at the DnR live, which means quite a few old faces will be out n about....

otherwise come to the city invasion for a full on nostalgia fest, i'm sure froggy and pat can chuck you around a bit to make it feel like the old days...

 

i'll dig some old photo's i've got of chaos uk at the hallamshire cos i know your in a couple....
