An obscure Oxford rock band who were around in the late nineties, until each of its members went off to University.

While they never really reached any degree of success - although they did play The Zodiac Club at least once - they will always be remembered by those who knew them for their lyrical "genius" and magnificent musicianship.

Two songs spring to mind: The Donkey Song, and Gandhi. The poetic masterpiece that was the former included such lines as:

I wanna be a donkey
I wanna be an ass
Please don't kick my donkey
Please don't kick my ass

While Gandhi was about, on face value at least, going for a stroll at the seaside and seeing the Indian peace advocate playing in the water.

They will be sorely missed.
