The Smalltown heroes released a number of singles including the world's first interactive CD-rom single, "Moral Judgement", including the band's history, the video for "Moral Judgement", and gig footage; "Moral Judgement" gets 'single-of-the-week' from Kerrang Magazine on its release in 1984 and is followed by their only album, Human Soup, in 1996. During the recording of what was planned as their second album Atomic Cafe in 1998, their record company pulls the plug, announcing they have no more money and the band fold. In the summer of 1998 Baz forms a retro-rock covers band the 'Sun Devils'. In 2000 Baz is invited to audition for The Stranglers, whom he met in 1985 when Smalltown Heroes supported The Stranglers on tour. He is succsessful and immediately sets off to Kossovo and then across europe with the band.
One of his first gigs is captured on the Euro live DVD. He is also well known in the small Northumberland village of Belford, where he played many solo gigs at the Salmon Inn while setting himself up with The Stranglers. Warne sings lead vocals on many of the tracks contained on The Stranglers' most recent studio album, Suite XVI, and in live gigs sings the vocals that would previously have been sung by Hugh Cornwell.
