The Blades had a few names along the way, notably The Honey Thieves to name but one. This was dropped

after the Irish band of the same name began reaching notariety. A bootleg film crew snuck into one of our Fleece gigs, only to realise

they'd travelled from London to film the wrong band. Anyway, they introduced themselves, filmed the gig and sold us the tape.

The band were together from late 80's through a large chunk of the '90's

and eventually after Rich's departure, continued as the band Poor.
