The JB Conspiracy

Formerly known as Duff Muffin, The JB Conspiracy formed late in 1999 in Guildford, Surrey. The majority of members attended school at St. Peter's C.C. School, playing their first gig to 20 students and teachers for charity and later in the year performing as the Graduation act with now unheard songs such as Tropical Fish and Mr. Mischief. They picked up some instruments, learnt to play them, and fused influences from some of their favourite bands (Less Than Jake, Specials, Catch 22, RX Bandits) with their own style and after a few line up changes became the band they are today.
