The fractured rocker had a twin vocal assault courtesy of Sam Swan and Sue Forbes and a menacing cyclic riff from Nick Swan (guitar), Nino Birch (bass) and drummer Alison, and featured strongly in Chris Knox’s November 1980 street view documentary on the Wellington Terrace Scene.
L.I.F.E were regulars at Wellington’s important, but short-lived punk venue, Billy d’club, in 1980, where they were known to perform complete with a fridge onstage and feature a twisted version of The Modern Lovers’ ‘Hospital’.
Guitarist Nick Swan was later in political post-punksters Riot 111.
