When dave started 2 years later they progressed to a three piece ska/punk band and started giging. With many charity shows, pubs and village hall gigs under their belt Slapface recorded their first E.P.

entitled "Some Of The Better Bits". They then had a big fall out with then drummer Gary who consequently left the band. A few weeks later a new drummer was enlisted temperarily by the name of Marz. Although problems then arrised because not only did Marz live in Winchester which is a fair bus ride fom Salisbury, but he was also the drummer in rival 3-iece Salisbury Punk-Ska band One Wet Nun.

As Marz's band threatened to kick him out he had to leave Slapface to carry on with One Wet Nun. Subsequently, Tom was enlisted on drums and the band started to play bigger gigs with better, more famous bands such as Whitmore, Uncle Brian, The Grit and Pama International. Slapface have played at venues such as The Joiners in Southampton, Salisbury Art Centre on many occasion, and Area 51. In January 2007 the band decided they needed something new to set them aside from rival 3-piece ska band One Wt Nun and so enlisted Harry on trumpet.

The band then decided that they needed something to write their lyrics about, and so David looked to his interest in politics as inspiration. Almost all of the bands most recent songs contain their strong views about their dislike for fascism and the BNP. On 14th September 2007 Slapface released their second EP entitled "The Oppression Of The People" which contained 7 songs. Tracklisting for "The Oppression Of The People": 01 - I don't Wanna Know 02 - Fuck The Co-Op 03 - Boom Boom Boom (Acoutic Rudeboy version) 04 - Don't Eat At MacDonalds 05 - Dub 06 - Willies & Bums 07 - Change Your Views The EP was intended as a Demo, and was recorded in 4 days in a shed.
