Punk / metal bands from Sheff between 1986 - 1996

Recommended Posts

Went to school with Murray Fenton. His first band was called "RAF" after the band member surnames: simon Rippon, tony Armitage And murray Fenton. The bass player was called Dean Buxton he must have joined later i suppose.

I was in Blind Mole Rat (mandolin & guitar) from 93 to 95 when the band split up. (Actually we 'reformed' for a one off surprise gig the following year for Ken (who ran the old Independent Bookshop opposite the Town Hall.) who was a great friend of the band. I've not heard from anyone else in the band for ages. I think Rob Overdrive and Robin Down are still in Sheffield, though. Rob plays violin in Tarana.

Doe anybody remember Eric and the Frantics. They were rally a Hayfield/Hope Valley band bt did gigs in Sheffield too. They were superb. Often pogoed in the street to their open air gigs. Had a sense of humour too, no set was complete without a rendition of their all time classic 'For Ken Hill'

I sang in Meld, rob overdrive drummed with us for a while, and then after I was in 2 til 10.

I knew jon who played bass in GGF through my brother's collega mates.

I still see robin downe knocking about, and as well as having joined a bit of a sheffield institution ( sharp cuts) I have recorded an album of all new original material with James Bacon, who was in Mindfeel with Robin and Simon Hinkler.

I always have loved the scene here in sheffield, so intertwining and really very supportive of each other... bands would always helo wach other out in a fix, and any rivalry was always friendly and usually ended up in a few beers down the washington and then a night at drop or step on.

I know Mixmif, used to get tattooed in the same place as him (designer skin, west bar, now shut). Last time I saw him was on the moor, just as he was putting the carpainters together. And I used to work with Jon from Bedlam Choir, who went on and joined Freekspurt, and is now in a band called Sukmunki. Has anyone got any slopdosh stuff they can put online as mp3s? Havent heard them for ages.
