Threats

Threats started of life in 1977 as the Reflectors. Just 4 local lads from Dalkeith in Midlothian Scotland who had a collective interest in Music.. Jim and Gogsy were next door neighbours from when they were born and grew up together. Early memories were a great interest in all things guitar based. The bands that they grew up with were the glam bands of the 1970's. It was all based on rock n' roll with bags o' fun thrown in for good measure. (That rings a bell). Slade, T-Rex, Sweet, Mud, you get the picture.
