"Damidge was formed by frontman Al Damidge in South London in 1987. In the band's 1990's peak, members included guitarist Alex Pym (Dream Machine/Zub Zub) bassist Roly Wynne (Ozric Tentacles co-founder) and Drummer Conrad Prince & Keyboardist Christopher "Seaweed" Lennox-Smith.

Amongst their playing history was The Astoria & Brixton Academy (both supporting Ozric Tentacles) as well as a UK tour in 1994 supporting the Ozrics and Zion Train.

Damidge recorded their debut album, 'Fax of Life' in 1994 at Foel Studios, North Wales. However the album was never released due to the band's breakup after Prince and Seaweed left to play with the Ozrics on their US tour.

The demise of the band left its frontman in deep depression and Wynne to a tragic suicide in 1999.

In 2013 Al reformed the band with Pym back on guitar, Mitch Lapute on bass and Cosmo on drums. "

Al and Alex reformed the band a couple of years ago with my old drummer Cos and a great young bass player Mitch. They've just put a video together for their track 'Ritten In Rehab' (all a bit MTV if you ask me :wink: ) so I thought I'd try and drum up a few extra views for them .....
