The Snake Corps came together in 1984 following the break-up of Sad Lovers & Giants (SL&G) the previous year. Aiming for a harder-edged sound, core members Tristan Garel-Funk and Nigel Pollard advertised in the Melody Maker for the necessary musicians. After many auditions they settled on Marc Lewis and Liam McGuinness on vocals and bass respectively. This original incarnation set about establishing its own sound - recording demos of songs later to appear on the band?s albums as well as a video of Look East for Eden at Kingston Poly where Marc was a student. After some initial success building a local following and reconnecting with many of the fans of SL&G, Nigel left the band and was replaced by Jon Greville from the extreme hardcore three-piece Rudimentary Peni. This line up went into record the first album: Flesh on Flesh, released on Midnight Music. Tours in europe helped to build and consolidate the band's following, but at home the story was one of press and radio indifference. Feeling a need to broaden the scope of the Snake Corps sound the band decided to add keyboards. But behind the scenes all was not well. Continuing UK indifference to their music had left spirits at an all time low and it was feared that the album would be released into a vacuum. Then, after years of financial hardship Midnight Music went into receivership and was bought up lock stock and barrel by Cherry Red Records. The band suddenly found that all their music: back catalogue, stock and copyright was now owned by someone else. This proved too much and the Snake Corps split. It seemed that the best-of compilation Spice subsequently released by Cherry Red would probably be the band's swan-song. Fortunately lead singer Marc Lewis has now re-recorded some of his favourite Snake Corps songs - the first new recording of Snake Corps music in over fifteen years! The album also contains a brand new song, and a version of the much loved track This is Seagull featuring vocals for the first time.
