Perfect Daze

Perfect Daze


Perfect Daze were formed in Ipswich, Suffolk, England in 1984 from a love of trashy guitar based rock n roll. The first line up was Lorenzo Lambourghini (Laurence Bell now head of Domino Records) on vocals, Ben E Chunders and Rico Shade on guitars, Jim P on bass, and Dazzle on drums. This line up played mostly small, sweaty pubs, clubs and (believe it or not) a disused quarry to a rock n roll audience of friends and the curious and also layed down a few decent demos.

The first line up was Lorenzo Lambourghini (Laurence Bell now head of Domino Records) on vocals, Ben E Chunders and Rico Shade on guitars, Jim P on bass, and Dazzle on drums. This line up played mostly small, sweaty pubs, clubs and (believe it or not) a disused quarry to a rock n roll audience of friends and the curious and also layed down a few decent demos. After gathering a fair following there was a line up change with Wolfie Retard (of The Stupids fame) replacing Jim P on Bass, Scruff Petty replacing Ben, and Col replacing Rico, though later on John Roscoe, a local guitarist who would eventually collaborate with bands such as Sink and K-Line, replaced Col Perfect Daze played live not only in East Anglia but nationally, and as the 1980's progressed, their loose links with the hardcore movement led to their signing by Vinyl Solution records of London, and to the release of a 12", Bubblegum.

This featured a sound that was more indie than hardcore, but influenced by singers and bands like the Replacements and the Descendents, a heavy American influence shone through. Dazzle left to concentrate on touring with Extreme Noise Terror, and Timmy stepped up to fill his shoes. As their connection to other bands of the era became more apparent, they toured with Australia's the Hard-Ons and Welsh band The Abs, whilst members of the band also guested and participated in other projects (Wolfie for a short time playing bass for the Stupids, plus the Coolest Retards). They toured Holland and Germany, and also played live with Sink, the band formed by late Stupids guitaris/vocalist and sometime Ipswich resident Ed Wenn. Laurence left the band in the early 90's to move to London, where he formed a record label that became Domino records, now a major player in the UK. Scruff played with various other bands, and took on a country & western style, but now plays for The Adicts with brother Mel whilst Wolfie became involved in local punk band Chocolate.

Dazzle has now quit playing drums and now concentrates on photographing other bands. Ben E Chunders now resides in New Zealand. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
