Alun's Rock Family Tree.

Little Drummer Boy

As you can see from this picture, Al (an unusually large child!) started drumming at an early age after receiving his first drum kit from Santa


Pholk Off
 

 

Al first tried his hand at Folk music but decided this wasn't for him after discovering you cannot hit those little celtic drums very hard!


Coercion
1992
After getting some free 'Coercion' T-shirts at a Depeche Mode Fan Club convention at the Camden Palace on 15th November 1992 (Coercion were the DM tribute band that night), Paul & Al (when wearing their freebies) used to impress girls by telling them we were in the band. Had to cease this sad charade when Paul mistakenly left his T-shirt on the floor one night and his dog pissed all over it!

Looking good boys!

 

Moist Gusset Jan 1996 to Jan 2000. 
The original ‘official’ works band set up by Jon Novice with the aid of a hefty grant from the FGSSA. Played a small number of rehearsals above the old canteen but never really got going due to a combination of not enough talent and attempting to play too many difficult songs. Spent more time arguing over the band name than actually playing anything! Fizzled out as band leader Jon ran out of time and energy when he started producing babies (with the aid of his wife, of course!)
