Fecal Matter started life in 1992 as Failure
to Display, With Jim on Bass and Vocals , Riggz on Guitar, and Mondo on drums. Playing our own brand of grunge.
Due to money and work problems Mondo left the
band to persue a career in boring night shifts.
At the time we were rehearsing in a pub but
were evicted for being too loud, causing us to be homeless, and without a drummer.
After several attempts to find a replacement
for Mondo, we came across Danny who was looking to join a band.
At the time Danny was only 16, and was into
Nirvana and Green Day, so we began to play cover versions of their songs.
We had almost made the decision to become a
Nirvana tribute band already calling ourselves Fecal Matter when the purchase of a 4 track recorder produced some original
songs from Riggz.
Friends that heard the tracks were so impressed
that we began to play these songs in our set and decided to ditch the covers completely and concentrate on original material,
but always stayed true to our name and still played the odd Nirvana track.
Over the years we have suffered many set-backs
and losses, but are still together.
In 1999 we eventually went into a recording
studio with Consumed Bass player Baz Barrett and recorded 6 tracks, 2 of which became our first single ( Make a Batch/I Feel
2000 saw us back into the studio with our first
major project the Immune e.p.
2001 see's the release of the Immune e.p.
