Led by brothers Andrew and Ray Missons Inferior Complex was originally formed in 1979 . Andrew plays guitar and keyboards and Ray plays bass and is the vocalist. Original drummer Jimmy Faye left the band late 1980 but the band continued with another drummer and later on with a drum machine until the band split in 1983.
The brothers then played in various other bands together until they reformed the group in January 2011 using an online drum machine. In 2015 they added Paul Jenman on drums to complete the current line up.
Their influences are early Factory Records bands including Section 25, A Certain Ratio, The Wake, Joy Division and New Order.
They self released their album “In Your Life” in June 2017 on Bandcamp and hooked up with German Shepherd in July 2017 for wider distribution. A series of singles and a radio session recording have been released with the label.
