Interview

Capo Regime
02/10/2001 (interview with  Eegie, Tony, Alex and Lee)



Please give a brief history of the band, including current line up.

We formed in Feb '91 because all the local bands were Metalica coverbands and weren't playing what we wanted to hear, so we thought we'd have a go and see if we could get one gig at our local.

After over 150 gigs, we're still going, but now Eegie (vocals) and Tony (guitar) are the only original members and the new members are Alex (drums) and Lee (bass). Nigel (the other guitarist) has taken some time out, but is still writing songs.
