Shatterhand

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.
