Vice Squad

Vice Squad

Vice Squad are a punk rock band formed in Bristol, England.
The lead vocalist Beki Bondage has been with the band in the original line-up and when the band reformed in 1998. Beki has continued to perform and record new songs including festival appearances at Rebellion in Blackpool UK, Punk And Disorderly Germany and Pod Parou Czech Republic. She is often cited as being the first punk pin-up featuring on the front cover of a number of influential music tabloids such as Melody Maker, NME, and Smash Hits.
Vice Squad formed in 1978 with an initial line-up of Beki Bondage (vocals), Dave Bateman (guitar), Mark Hambly (bass), and Shane Baldwin (drums), and played their first gig at Bristol University's Anson Rooms on 12 April 1979. Bateman and Baldwin had previously been members of the TV Brakes.[1] The first release by the band was the track "Nothing", which was included on the 1979 compilation Avon Calling. Members of the band were involved in setting up the Riot City label with Simon Edwards, the label becoming one of the major punk labels of the era. The band took some time to make further impact, only playing six gigs in 1980, but 1981's debut single "Last Rockers" was well-received, selling over 20,000 copies and spending almost forty weeks in the UK Indie Chart, reaching number 7.[1] The follow-up, "Resurrection", reached number 4, and the band undertook a tour supporting UK Subs. The singles received airplay and support from BBC Radio 1 DJ John Peel, and they would go on to record two sessions for his show, in 1981 and 1982.
