The Reducers is the name of more than one artist.

One band known as The Reducers was formed in 1978 in New London, Connecticut, USA, by guitarists Peter Detmold and Hugh Birdsall with drummer Tom Trombley and bassist Steve Kaika. They formed their own label, Rave On Records, and still perform and record to this day.

Another band known as The Reducers is from the late 1970’s and was a band from Bury, Lancashire in the United Kingdom and consisted of Raggy F.C. on vocals, Graham Barstow on drums, Roy Tynan on guitar and Stuart Lyons on bass. They released two singles on Vibes records. The first (VR-001) was released in 1978 and had “Things Go Wrong” on the A side and “We Are Normal” on the B side. The second (VR-003) was released in 1979 and had “Man With A Gun” on the A side and “Vengeance / Can’t Stop Now” on the B side. By this time Stuart Lyons and Graham Barstow had left the band to be replaced by Pil Odell and Steve Rutter. The band then signed to EMI but they split before releasing anything. There are a few demo copies of what would of been their first single with EMI floating around (EMI 5028) with “Airways” on the A side and “Waiting for No-One” on the B side. “We Are Normal” appeared on the Messthetics #1 CD.
