The original line up formed when Stoke-on-Trent groups Fuck Hate Propaganda, KZZCH and Skincheese disbanded, with members of each wishing to remain active in the UK DIY music scene.
Shortly after recording their first Demo CD, they performed their first international shows in Germany during March 2006, appearing on three dates of the Grindcore Syndicate alongside Antigama, Keizter and Nasghul. This was followed by the release of their debut album 'Clouds Over Pripyat', of which the front cover, booklet artwork and many of the songs were based upon the nuclear disaster in Chernobyl, 1986.
From 2007 to 2009, the band underwent several line up changes but continued to release music in collaboration with independent labels, including appearances on splits and compilation albums with bands from across Europe, The United States of America and Asia. They also played extensively throughout the UK, completed two European tours and a tour across South East Asia. Upon the end of the Asian tour and the band's return to the UK, outside interests resulted in a decline in productivity until they eventually went on an official hiatus.
In 2012 the hiatus ended, all members returned to the UK and have since starting writing and recording again. In 2015 they will play their first international shows in over five years, with performances booked in Russia, Ukraine and Iceland.
