Biography

Richmond/Kingston scene of the late ‘70’s. Punky power pop. Formed in 1979 by Wardens guitarist David Cuff and Nick Valentine. David literally became a Pedestrian after Barry Batman - singer of the Wardens - left his yellow Vauxhall Viva on a double yellow only to be impounded. The cost of getting the vehicle back was more than Cuff had paid to buy it and Batman would not cough up so Cuff stormed off in a huff.
Pictured are David Cuff, Nick Valentine and Jon Mortimer.
Played locally with bands like Cardiac Arrest (now the Cardiacs), The Magnificent 7, 58 Escape, Null’n’Void, The Outsiders (who became The Sound) and of course the Wardens.

Very sadly original drummer Toby Sladek passed away. Very sadly, replacement drummer Jon Mortimer also passed away . David Cuff went on to play with Crazy About Love, The Happy Few and The Crabs.
