Vocalist Jase Pope and bassist Paul Hill were then asked to join as Rockett was previously in another band with them called Deranged prior to knowing Grice.
A demo was recorded. A track from the demo was released as the band's first song available to the public; the 7" EP cassette was called "Wessex '83" and was a product of Face of the Subhumans Jase Pope and Paul Hill were soon to be replaced by Roge Davies and Paul Davis, respectively.
The subsequent line-up recorded a demo, "What Lies Ahead", in 1983, which was produced by John Perry of The Only Ones
