Jonny What a year! TB release single 'Robot Tourist' and 'debut' album 'Hiss'. Napolean leaves to take up other employment 3 weeks before Joe Strummer tour.
Bruce Brand, who had played drums on 'The Emperor' on the album 'Hiss' steps into the breach. He plays on Strummer tour and features as werewolf drummer in the video for 'I Don't Buy It'. Other commitments prevent Jonny from playing Strummer tour as well, so keys are played by Will (…….). Chaos.
Single 'I Don't Buy It' is released, and followed by Christmas single 'Black Snow' with video featuring new Sheffield-based members, Dave Attwood (drums) and Ian Hutchinson (bass and keys).
It is worth mentioning that Dave and Ian both played on Black Snow and also on version of Sweat Pt1 & 2 (Pt 2 is featured on US album 'Benson Burner') recorded by Anthony Chapman.
