I was about 17 when I first picked up an electric guitar. I¹d really always wanted to be a singer so I bought the guitar to actually write songs on and taught myself how to play. I started off playing in a couple of local Punk/Rock style bands called 'The Parasites¹, 'Flowers For Agatha¹, and 'The Crisps¹. I put a band together called 'Déjà vu¹ we picked up quite a bit of interest and decided to move to London but split up a year or so later.
It all depends on what's coming up for us, when there¹s any gigs booked we¹ll get together and rehearse beforehand and the gigs themselves always help the band to be tighter anyway. If we have a new song to sort out we quite often try it at a sound check and if it works then we¹ll put it in the set that night. We¹re also fortunate that I have a small studio and Denise has an electronic drum kit here so we could get together in my flat whenever we wanted to, to write or rehearse up anything new.
