Produced in 2003 in Melbourne, this old-fashioned hardcore group has generated a significant presence in the Australian direct edge scene. The initial line-up, composed of Martin Kirby (vocals), Anthony Harris (electric guitar), Ed Redclift (bass/vocals), and David Bichard (drums), produced its name using a punishing touring timetable in the Australian hardcore circuit. A divide release with Hardly ever Alone and 2005’s self-titled EP both marketed well, and resulted in a contract using the Resist label for the 2006 record NIL TO LOSE. Some line-up changes implemented the same season, with significant hardcore scenester Michael Crafter (ex-I Killed The Prom Queen) drafted in as business lead vocalist, with Kirby switching to tempo guitar instead of the departing Harris, and Josh Manitta changing short-term guitarist Julian Marsh. Regardless of the music group’s burgeoning profile, Crafter elected to keep them in Feb 2007. Kirby resumed his business lead vocalist placement with Ben Coyte earned as second guitarist.
