The band is led by the ubiquitous Sir Bald Diddley on guitar and lead vocals. Sir Bald has been described as 'Britain's string king' in reference to his wild and fiery guitar style, influenced by Bo Diddley, Link Wray, Chuck Berry, Dick Dale. He is a man with over 250 song writing credits to his name and some very precarious stage antics, including the infamous 'Pea Bug' which involves much rolling around on the floor during guitar solos! He is currently also working on a new band project with ex Supergrass members!   Bruce 'Bash' Brand (drums) is one of Britain's if not the world's finest rock 'n' roll drummers, playing in cult happenings such as the Milkshakes, Headcoats, Billy Childish, Holly Golightly and the Masonics, and also managing to work with the Pretty Things, Downliner Sect, Wreckless Eric, Mungo Jerry and make two albums with Link Wray along the way!
