It all started back in 2014 when we when we all met on a music course at Stourbridge college.

Jon said yes.

I got sick of lugging gear around in a trolly so bought another inconveniently small car.

I had some personal issues and I felt living in a van would help.

So I did that.

Jon moved back to the Black Country and had a go at a solo career playing acoustic Oasis songs in pubs. (He actually joined Nirvana UK and played some epic gigs.)

Even though Becky was not playing bass for us at this time we would all still hang out.

A year of living in my van and I felt like a change so I got my haircut and moved back to the Black Country.
