The Acid Test
The Acid Test
The band are still mates with Greg who is pursuing an acoustic based solo project as well as playing in 'Geko' (check out their Myspace, they rock). With the departure of Greg in early 2005 the band looked for a new vocalist, they found it in the shape of Tom. His voice fitted the band perfectly as did his on stage antics (which usually ended up with a broken mic stand or two). The band also changed the name from 'Spilt Milk' to 'The Acid Test' After a few gigs the band was on the up, playing to at least four people a night.
After a few more gigs the band seemed to have attracted a bit of a crowd. Some people even started singing along to the songs. Hurrah! Surely it was only a short hop from here to the world of private jets, fast cars, hard drugs and groupies. Unfortunately the dream was not to be.
In late 2005 James decided he wanted out. He cited musical differences and a desire to concentrate on his acoustic material. A week later Tom decided to leave, citing musical differences and a desire to concentrate on his acoustic material. The band noticed a pattern.
Tom and James have since formed 'Lemonade Shade' (not sure if they have a myspace/website but check them out if you get a chance). Tom is also in another band. So with only three members 'The Acid Test' was stuck. As 2005 closed and 2006 started new members had to be found.
Luckily for all involved they were. 'The Acid Test' welcomed Andy (or Sandy to his friends) and Matt. The band had started off as a straight up rock group. The changes in members have introduced new styles and the music 'The Acid Test' now creates is a blend off all forms of rock, funk and even some metal.
