"With members that reside in Reading, Guildford and High Wycombe, we're not sure bands get more diffused than The Shitty Limits.

Furious (drums), and Greg Ingraham (guitar). Critic Greil Marcus once said The Avengers were, “…San Francisco’s best punk band - in their moments, they were, you knew, better than any other band playing that night anywhere in the world.”
