1991 I helped put the UkSubs back together with Lars Ericson on guitar befor he returned to the states to form rancid.

1996 i'd done enough gigs for now so decided to give it rest and retain sanity.

I now teach drums for a living but have been gigging with UkSubs, and am involved with the Tolley men.

John Chivers

Quite a long list! One small correction. I was BAiT's drummer and there is a typo in my surname, which is 'Chivers', not 'Chives'.

Good work!

Just a couple of amendments: Pam of the Orchids' name was Jarman not Jarmen.

I don't think that Malc Harker was in the Dodgers but he was in The Perfumed Garden
