Gary later turned up in a revamped Blitz and provided the vocals on their "Killing Dream" album. Gary and Lindsay married in 1985.

One Car Pile-Up is a United Kingdom melodic punk band which formed in the Scunthorpe area in 1996. Chris Lonsdale was the bassist in local band Gan at the time, and approached Wes Wasley to form a new band. They wrote songs at Wes' house while thinking about other people to complete the line-up. Chris brought along Dave Clarke who was the singer in Gan and so the search was on for a drummer. After trying a couple of local people it was obvious they needed someone who could play fast, and Wes suggested Robin 'Towie' Tow who used to play in Mental Seizure with him...

It all started back in 1998 when Dave, Stuart, Brian and Rams met up in a shady rehearsal studio in an effort to get all the surplus energy and anger out of our collective system. After four practices the chance came to play a couple of shows with Vanilla Pod and being the idiots that we are, we drunkenly agreed. I guess that was kinda when we were born for real - More shows followed throughout the UK and Ireland with the like of Diesel Boy, UK Subs, Shelter, Lost Prophets, Real McKenzies, 999, Turtlehead, Fireapple Red, The Dangerfields, No Comply, Even In Blackouts etc.
