Vice Squad - VICE SQUAD

Formed: Bristol, England, UK

The original lineup was Beki Bondage on vocals (Ligotage / Chaotic Dischord / Beki & The Bombshells), Dave Bateman on guitar (Chaotic Dischord / Sex Aids / Sweet Revenge), Mark Hambley on bass and Shane Baldwin on drums. Bateman and Baldwin also moonlighted in Chaotic Dischord and Sex Aids. When Beki left in 1983, she was replaced by Lia (ex-Affairs Of The Heart), and Hambley was replaced the following year by Jon Chilcott. Vice Squad split in 1985, whereupon Bateman and Baldwin carried non with Chaotic Dischord but then formed Sweet Revenge. In a funny turn of events, Beki formed an alternative version of Chaotic Dischord in the mid 80s but generally preferred to work with Ligotage and Beki & The Bombshells.
