The guitarist TOm McGinley and Drummer Paul Jackson use to play for a band known as 'The Venkman Heist'.
'The Venkman Heist' was Kirk Yeomans: Lead Vocalist and Bass Guitarist, TOm McGinley: Backing Vocalist and Lead Guitarist & Paul Jackson: Drummer. 'The Venkman Heist' had a five drummers perform with them over a five year period, Paul Jackson was not their first but their last drummer to join the band right up to them disbanding.
'The Venkman Heist' released a small EP known as 'Substance Sake' in 2005, these band demos were the start of something extraordinary in Sheffield's Music Scene. Later in 2007 they released 'Lost Songs' another EP where the music was more professionally recorded. The band were probably at their highest point back then as they started to play at Festivals in South Yorkshire, do Radio Interviews and get higher reviews better than bands such as 'The Stone Gods'.
We're still in the process of writing our material. We start gigging in October later this year.
