One day last year (2005) Greg Butler was tinkering around with his musical equipment (a fire alarm, an acoustic pneumatic drill and a cheese grater). As time went by, he grew cold and needy in the solitary confinement of his solo project (Kirk Sandall). Craving for the warmth and stability of an international rock act, he decided to visit his friend Will Fisk (formerly The Surgens/Plastic Hip), a notorious train robber from the Peterborough area. Once embedded into Will's seedy underworld (OMM), he was introduced to his authoritarian and frankly draconian brother, Ted (The Oliver Twist Project), who whipped him into shape quicker than you can say "You've stepped on my custard". Ted plucked his bass with such grace that he managed to mesmerise his new band mates into a performance that would be acceptable to the ear of the common man. The result of that fateful day, and many more to come, is 'BEARCUB'. Hear us roar!!!!…or something. Oh and then one day Mrs Ted, (Tanwen Richardson) joined on violin and not long after old friend Matt Hagger started plaing some lead guitar and bashing objects.
