It started in the Winter of 2005. Two friends, named 'Luke' and 'Adam', had one shared goal. To spread the love of Rasputin through the vast lands of Wigan and its surrounding areas. After much thought, it was agree'd that the best way to achieve this was to form a Musical Group. Rasputin The Musical! just couldn't generate enough interest and too many arguments took place over who should actually star as Rasputin. So that was decided, but who should play in this conceptual ensemble?
Local simpleton 'Dave' was the first to be asked, as he already had at least three days singing experience prior to joining the band, and although his first instrument is infact the Slide Whistle, he also agree'd to play the electric guitar as well. Next up was 'Sam', acclaimed drummer and member of the only croquet club in Wigan. With him already winning three drumming awards..from..some..place, he seemed the ideal candidate. Finally, part time lovers 'Luke' and 'Adam' decided they should be the ones to complete the line up. With 'Adam' naturally choosing to play the Westfield Electric Bass Guitar because the 'fro told him to, and 'Luke' deciding to dabble in the art of button bashing and knob twiddling..otherwise known as the Synthesizer.
And so it was, with enough combined hair to fashion a small rug, and enough talent to fill a small urine sample bottle, all that was left to do now was to come up with a catchy name. When that failed they were forced to use "You Remind Me Of Rasputin", as "The Rasputins", "We Love Rasputin" and "Rasputin….we love you" were all sadly taken.
Oh yeah and they wrote some music too.
