Formed in 1975 in Peterborough, Gobblinz were formed from musicians who had spent several years playing clubs and pubs in previous bands but with Ian’s songwriting skills, they decided to change direction and went into Beck Studios Wellingborough in 1976 to recorded a demo.

The band soon got signed by Pinnacle and their first release ‘London’ sold well. However after a split with their management the Band recorded the ‘Communique’ EP which is now one of the most sought after 7″ new wave releases. Ian left the band in late 1978 to form The Name who became well known on the UK Mod scene, Dave joining a few months later.

Chris carried on playing with ex ‘The Now’ bass player Faz Farrow in The Racketts and also became a heart throb as a model ! The four were reunited in 1997 at the Peterborough Beer festival which was recorded for a live album soon to be released on download via the bands area on
