About

The band is a reincarnation of Overkill, the UK band (1979 to 1983) who built a solid reputation and a dedicated army of fans by gigging hard all over the country.

Overkill was formed in 1979 in Hampshire

Original Line-up:

Mick Fowler        -    Lead Vocals and guitar
Shaun Kebby        -    Lead guitar
Randle Williams     -     Drums
Paul Nicholson         -     Bass

Paul Nicholson left in 1981
Marcus Nason joined on Bass, making line-up 2

Overkill played at the Reading Rock Festival in 1982

Randle Williams left in 1983, and the band then decided to call it a day.

Line-up 2 reformed for Live Aid in 1985 – raised £1500 headlining a gig in Whitchurch town hall, Hampshire with several other bands. Everyone then went their separate ways again. Randle moved away from the area, but Mick still kept in occasional contact with Marcus and Shaun.

2009 – Shaun, Mick and Marcus met up. They chatted about how the industry had changed, internet etc. and decided to try and reform the band. Marcus moved onto Drums, and Bass duties were taken up first by Brian Jones, another old mate from the local music scene, who helped them get everything going in rehearsals. Then in 2010, Simon Machon came in on Bass, making the fourth line-up!
