The Vibrators - THE VIBRATORS

Formed: London, England, UK

Knox RN Ian Carnochan (guitar, vocals) also played in Roses Are Red, Urban Dogs, Troops Of Tomorrow and Fallen Angels, John Ellis joined The Stranglers, Gary Tibbs (bass) went onto Adam & the Ants and Roxy Music, Jon "Eddie" Edwards (drums) played with Public Image Ltd and The Inmates. Other members at various times included Kip (ex-Cane), Greg Van Cook (ex-The Electric Chairs) and Tommy Trouble RN Ben Brierley (ex-Front/Nazis Against Fascism/Blood Poets).

Outside the scope of this site the band has released many albums and singles since 1986. The Power Of Money (The Best Of The Vibrators) (1995) is not a normal best-of but but re-recordings and is best avoided.
