Biography

Like so many others the Killermeters started life as a punk band the Killer Meters as they were then, split in 1978, reforming in the October as the mod band The Killermeters, kicking back into life with a new song that said it all: Back in Business. They were the best and most energetic band in the industrial Yorkshire town of Huddersfield and played all the club and pub venues in the North. During their time they were warned by John Peel that the Mod image would lead them down a blind alley but they were also raved about in Sounds by Gary Bushell, supported Secret Affair and The Undertones and finally went on tour with Eddie & The Hot Rods. Unfortunately the tour was to leave them badly in the red and as a result the Killermeters finally came to an end, coming back to life as Soldiers Are Dreamers in 1981, taking their name from the Sassoon poem.
