we also rock up some more unexpected but still well known and loved tunes , making sure we keep things interesting and maintaining 
musical momentum throughout our gigs. We have it all covered, new and old, fast and slow, soft and heavy , ballads , sing-alongs and
foot tapers , and everything in between.

Favourite guitar: “My trusty red Strat that I've had for 31 years, currently on its 7th set of pickups."


Pete 'Jesus' Cumpstone


Plays the four string as it’s two easier than a six!
Loves Iron Maiden, Metallica, GnR, A7X and many more spread in wider circles!
Does Jesus look alike in spare time at very reasonable rates. If found return to Download Festival.



Drums & Percussion

Widely regarded as one of Lincolnshire’s premiere rock drummers.
One of life's perfectionists and his own best critic.
Watching Steg in action is a must - his attention to detail and technical ability is outstanding and a joy to watch.
