In the meantime, CC Voltage had been playing
as a member of The Spitfires, releasing
albums on labels like Junk Records and Estrus and writing his own songs
(as well as playing a few gigs and festivals as a Black Halo), Tom had
been playing with The Lurkers and his own band Fastlane Roogalator, and
Rich had been touring with Amen and former Atari Teenage Riot frontman
Alec Empire. Band whores, all of them!
After the Yo-Yo's exploded mid-tour at the end of 2005, Rich, Tom and
Craig decided to focus their energies on forming something new. Writing
began and in the meantime Tom and Rich filled their time as guitarists
with The Dogs D'Amour. In June 2006 the band came together to record
their first 4 song demo at London's Enterprise Studios. The band already
have plans to tour internationally with shows booked in Germany, Italy
and the UK, as well as North American shows being lined up.
