Formed: York, North Yorkshire, England, UK
Ropy band of no real distinction other than their crapness.
Cyanide played pubby punk with little conviction. Their self-titled LP was a poorly produced and badly written effort. Their 1979 single, Your Old Man, was borderline acceptable, but proved to be their last gasp. Steve Roberts (their drummer in 1979) later played with UK Subs and The Exploited.
