Inspired by the punk philosophy that you didn’t need to play and anyone could do it, they remained a two piece bedroom band until 1981 when, with an augmented line-up, they played gigs around Southend until 1983, releasing a flexi single, Vampire Dread, which recently featured in an exhibition of punk graphic design at the Hayward Gallery.
