The band’s name is a quote from a glamour model

overheard entering a strip club. "This place is so

rank deluxe" she said; apparently she meant the height

of scum. Drawn to the multiple implications, they took

the phrase as their own. The band comprises four 20

somethings from south east London; Rich Buchanan on

Lead Vocals, Lew Dyer on Lead Guitar, John Wallis on

Bass, and Chris Ballard on Drums. Lew and Rich grew up

on the same council estate in Thamesmead, south east

London, and the bands current line up formed early in

2005. The band refer to their music as SEWAGE - “a

sonic picture of council estate youth”.
