Kill Clouseau

Kill Clouseau was a relatively short-lived (compared to other bands I've played in), but fun covers band.

Formed as a spin-off band from BAiT to play covers, ostensibly as a revenue generator for BAiT, in order to fund equipment purchases, the band took on a life of its own and continued for a few month's after BAiT's demise in 2007.

The group had a couple of line-ups, initially featuring the following line-up:

  • Declan Sharma - Vocals and Bass Guitar
  • Chris Johnson - Guitars
  • Nick Nugent - Keyboards
  • John Chivers - Drums and Backing Vocals

Shortly after the demise of BAiT, Declan Sharma left and was replaced by Mark Yates on lead vocals/percussion and Cathy Cordiner on bass guitar.

The band finally folded after a farewell New Year's Eve in 2007, after which Chris hung up his guitar and concentrated on photography and Nick and Cathy moved to Norfolk to get married, settle down, and start a family.

Pretty much straight after the final gig, I accepted Mark's invitation to join his other covers band Ministry Of Beaver, for whom I've played since.

This is a long-standing problem in the EU. How do you reconcile the balance … Continue reading
