ON TRIAL (UK)
On Trial UK play rock n roll with a punk edge , they mix catchy rock riffs with strong melodies. Their lyrics are beautifully twisted and cover the subjects most bands dont dare. On stage they live out the constant battle between good and evil that is in all of us....
Once upon a time, in SE London, Wayne & a few mates were home getting lashed then decided to put on womens clothes & sing songs. One of Wayne's friends (Surel) said they should be called 'The Tantrums' & that gave Wayne an idea!
Cross-dressing wasn't his bag, so he put on his regular gear and went out searching far & wide for musicians that had the bollocks to be in his new band.
First Wayne found Acey, who didn't have any bollocks in the literal sence, but she knew how to play the drums so that was good enough. Then he found John, who's a bit of pesimistic sod, but he could play guitar so that was good enough. Finally, he found Nick & the line-up was complete.
Since this unity, The Tantrums have been through thick & thin to bring PUNK back to this world & show all the non-believers that punk's not dead! monday 16th feb..new blog.......................we have a oi new line up now ...nick our bass player has been oi kicked out of the band...nothin personal nick man ,but bands move on.....we have a new aussie guy now on bass called ashley ,and hes oi awesum...with a oi sense of humour......so the tantrums r ready once again 2 kick oi punk arse ,so get down 2 see us cunts play b4 the fuckin world ends yol...oi
