xxx History xxx

Originally the orchestra for Judge's and Max Hutchinson's musical The Kibbo Kift which was performed at Crucible Theatre in Sheffield in April and May 1976. Later they continued with ordinary gigs, a residency at the Marquee Club and a gig at the Queen Elizabeth Hall with Alberto Y Los Trios Paranoias.

Judge: "A song we were butchering was Nadir's Big Chance. Eventually it became a regular part of our live set. God knows what Peter thought of it." (Singed Ground program 1994) It's an appalling but very funny version of the PH punk song, according to Fred Tomsett.
