This British hardcore band was formed in Stoke-on-Trent, England, during 1983 by ex-Discharge guitarist Tony Bones Roberts. Recruiting brother Terry on bass, vocalist Nobby and drummer Cliff, they closely followed the metal/punk crossover approach of Bones former group. With controversial lyrics and a rigidly formularized approach, they have progressed little since their inception. After a period of inactivity, they returned in 1989 with Quiv and D.L. Harris as new faces on lead vocals and bass, respectively. Losing Control appeared shortly afterwards, a vitriolic blast of angst-ridden hardcore, but again, little different from previous offerings.
