Albino Dinnerjacket live
Live in Darwen, 1983

At a house party, fresh from final school exams, Keith Nuttall (Cloudburst) and Craig Jepson (Cloudburst sound-man and stand-in drummer) agreed to form a covers-only band, as something to do in the summer of 1983. Albino Dinnerjacket was put together, recruiting former Cloudburst colleagues Stephen Farrell and Gordon Farquhar, as well as local keyboardist Patrick Fielding.

For no good reason, they gave themselves ridiculous stage names, and adopted an anthropomorphic rabbit as the band logo. They performed two live shows over the summer.

Keith and Gordon continued to compose and record original material during this period, and produced another demo compilation, It's My Ambtition to Pull the Plug Out at a Heavy Metal Show.

A year later, Keith, Craig and Gordon would form Back to the Grind with Psychopython bassist Michael Brandon.
