Kev North, Influenced by the British blues rock bands of the early 70`s and the later Punk explosion, Kev relocated from Luton via Lowestoft to London in the late 70's.

The birth of the punk goth experiment Temple Slang in the mid eighties with Ex Dormannu frontman Mike, Nick Burton Drums ( Westworld , Jah Wobble and The Orb } and Phil Aimes (Pleasure and The Beast and Voice Of The Beehive) put everything into a different gear and shaped Kev's guitar style.
