Public Domain changed their line up in 2002 when Mallorca Lee and David Forbes continued with their solo projects.
Public Domain originally were James Allan, Mark Sherry and Alistair MacIsaac, they started the band under the idea that all of their music would be under a “Public Domain” licence which they continue to do. They penned the hit “Operation Blade”, After signing the track to Slinky it was decided they needed a frontman - enter Mallorca Lee. Mallorca was at that time working on his own project with David Forbes; this was put on hold and both Mallorca and David contributed to the album “Hardhop Superstars”.
