Biography

The sound of Broken Bones is the sound of punk at its most primal, the crashing roar of wild, wild youth taken to limits even the Sex Pistols never dreamed of. When the band formed in 1983, punk may not have been dead, but it was certainly dying. Then Broken Bones came along and the reverberations are still being felt today, in the battle cries of Bad Religion and the swagger of Rancid, in the white heat of Slayer and the debauchery of Ministry. Some people have called Broken Bones one of the biggest Hardcore bands of all time and one of the most vital, various U. S. mega-bands such as Metallica have even acknowledged them as one of their influences.
Broken Bones are from England and were formed by brothers Tezz Roberts (Terry Bones) and Tony “Bones” Roberts in 1983 after they left Discharge. Sounds magazine did an article titled “Broken Bones”, about the brothers leaving Discharge. The brothers had found their new band name. The original lineup was Tezz on bass, Bones on guitar, Nobby as the vocalist and drummer Bazz. Their first single release was the January 1984 “Decapitated” which hit # 10 in the indy charts. The follow-up single “Crucifix” was released in May 1984 hitting #12. Tezz left the band to join UK Subs and friend and roadie Paul “Hoddy” took over on bass. This new line-up recorded the band’s first album “Dem Bones”, and toured Europe & the USA.
Hoddy then left to join Conflict, and Tezz resumed bass playing duties, and the F.O.A.D. album was released with Karl “Egghead” from The Exploited joining in on rythem guitar.
