Original Bassplayer Jon Berhendt left in 2009 and was briefly replaced by Jad Hill who in turn left after suggesting they write songs about sexy gingerbread men.
The line up was complete when long time friend Adam Harper joined in Spring 2009. Porpoise have released so far:

Kool Keith

An original member of New York's pioneers the Ultramagnetic MC's, "Kool" Keith Thornton is best known as a solo rapper. His signature style is stream-of-consciousness lyrical flow and complex vocals, two skills that earn him a perennial nod from the underground community. The average Kool Keith album is peppered with bizarre, disjointed, even delusional or disassociated themes, concepts, and references. Nearly all of his albums incorporate a satirical dislike for more commercialized strains of hip-hop, as well as major record labels.

Menswear

Menswe@r were a short-lived Britpop band in the mid 1990s from Camden in London. They signed their record deal after their fifth gig, appearing on the cover of Melody Maker (in an article about Camden club night Blow Up) before they had recorded a note. They were featured in a Select article about the mod revival when the project was still purely in the imaginations of Chris Gentry and Johnny Dean. Their dress sense was Mod (tight fitting suits etc) whilst their music was influenced by both Blur's second album Modern Life Is Rubbish and Elastica.

The Move

The Move evolved from several mid 1960s Birmingham based groups, including Carl Wayne & The Vikings, The Nightriders & The Mayfair Set. The group's name seems to refer to the move various members of these bands made to form the group. Beside Roy Wood, the original members of the Move were drummer Bev Bevan, bassist Chris "Ace" Kefford, vocalist Carl Wayne & guitarist Trevor Burton. Their first single, 'Night of Fear' was released in 1966 and was the first in a line of memorable hits penned chiefly by Roy Wood.

Weebl

Weebl, (real name Jonti Picking) owner of www.weebls-stuff.com, is a comedic flash animator/musician. Most of his jokes are completely random, or deal with pie in some way. Weebl created the "Weebl and Bob" series of flash animations, which consist of two egg-like objects, a large one named Weebl, and a smaller one named Bob. They talk incoherently, but this problem is fixed with speech bubbles. They have bad grammar (e.g. "You bringed back pie!").
