1. A Gothic Rock band from Sheffield, UK.
Once upon a time in the mid-nineties there were four no-good long-haired drop-outs with a common liking for eighties music and goth in particular. Bad cover versions of songs such as ‘More’ and ‘Vision Thing’ would occasionally be heard emanating from a large upstairs bedroom in Sharrow. From these tune-free beginnings in South Central Sheffield coalesced the band currently known as The Way of All Flesh. After a year or so of this we used the Student Sounds Society - the muso’s equivalent of Dateline - to hook up with a suitable life-form (no-one could accuse us of being choosy) willing to sing and write lyrics. A fresh-faced, dark young thing called Simon was drafted in and as of October 1995 the band had a five piece line-up consisting of Simon Clifton (vocals), Steve Jackson (lead guitar), Dave Redford (rhythm guitar), Jasper Fisher (bass) and Kathryn Rennie on keyboards and other such technological nightmarishness.

We spent the next year rehearsing in a cold damp garage with a low ceiling and sloping floor, with the taller band members (and Kate in heels) playing at one end, and Simon at the other. For reasons none of us can remember, we decided that the University Student Band Competition, with an audience of several hundred, would make an ideal first gig.
