In the summer of 1994 we lost a guitarist, which was the point that i also started to learn how to play. It took a couple of months to find a replacement, and we decided to change the name of the band to Slater (because we wanted a clean slate). Oddly, our first show under the new name saw us supported by Creed. We cut a single, it got Single Of The Week on Radio 1, we were getting lots of press and label interest but our drummer was starting to come off the rails with his drug use. We were due to have our biggest show (first on at Brixton Academy supporting Nirvana), then Kurt topped himself, our drummer got to the point where he couldn't remember half the songs and i called it a day. The others carried on for a bit with a female singer, but we lost touch.
Best gig - Playing with The 25th May at the Powerhaus and singing the whole of the encore whilst crowdsurfing.
Worst Gig - ULU with Gorgeous Space Virus and our drummer literally forgetting how to play halfway through the set with about 5 labels watching.
