The Short ‘n’ Curlies

TheShort ‘n’ Curlies were formed in Norwich, England at the beginning of 1989 by Paddy & Maff after the break up of their band ‘YOB’. The line up at this time was Johnny-Vocals, Adie-Guitar, Paddy-Drums and Maf-Bass. After a couple of years of gigging, Adie left the band and was replaced by Stuie (ex. YOB guitarist). Soon after this Mark, the bands’ van driver, took over on vocals. The line up now was Mark-Vocals, Stuie-Guitar, Paddy-Drums & Maf-Bass. At this time the band released a compilation of old and new demo’s under the title „Nuts As Fuck“ and then set out gigging around the U.K. The demo sold well and was well received by fanzines, the band soon made a name for themselves on the U.K. punk scene. It wasn’t long before the band came to the attention of Germany’s ‘Knockout’ Records who begged the band to release an album which they did in 1994 with their debut album „Bitter ‘n’ Twisted“. The band then set about gigging and touring all ove r Europe, the U.K. and Ireland. 1996 saw the release on Knockout of the 4 track „Make ‘em Suffer“ E.P. followed by yet more gigging and touring. Being fat lazy bastards they didn’t get around to recording any new stuff until 1998 and now in 1999 sees the release of „For Fuck’s Sake“ a new 8 track album. Now were back! with a new line up of mark/vocals,maff bass, mark /guitar,ryan/guitar,paddy/drums.
