Sorry tale of woe...

When I first met the band they lived in a student type house in fairly dodgy part of Birmingham. I remember two things specifically about the location - the whores sat on the street sign at the top of the road and the great kebab meat and chips the local chippy sold.

The band moved from Birmingham to Liverpool (Norris Green) after Joie was posted to a supermarket in Birkenhead. I think she was promoted to some form of shop floor manager at the same time.

Something was in the air at the time and it looked bad when Joie went into Liverpool and returned with dye stripper and proceeded to return to natural brown from the oh-so-gothic black. Shortly after, on return from an extended trip from home to set-up a new store in Scotland, Joie announced that she and Mike would no longer be together. Any talk of another love interest is unfounded rumour at best!

I believe that even after this unfortunate turn of events the band stuck together for a couple more gigs before it all eventually fell apart. Wez was seen once more in Liverpool before disappearing never to be seen (by me) again, though I think my sister ran into him somewhere in the Midlands at a later date.

I stayed with Mike for a while and at this time he was introduced to a friend of my then girlfriend. They had a bit of a fling which ended after a few short months and I think we saw him for the last time at a party he threw sometime later in his new rented house in Toxteth (he sure knew how to pick places to live!). After a drugs and drink fueled evening we left and I never saw any of the band again.

Where are they now?

I've had no further contact with them since, perhaps someone can update this part of the history...

Update [Jun 2009]: A comment on YouTube says that Joie (AKA Mrs Garner) is a history teacher. 
Update [Jan 2004]: Wez emailed to comment on the web site - so at least one of the band is still in the land of the living.
