THE STORY SO FAR........ It was the early summer of '91 and two fresh faced young Sydney boys (Bow and Davis) are aspiring rock cods who have recently lost their rhythm section in a fatal personality clash. Meanwhile two recent migrants from sunny Perth (Richard and Peter) have moved to Sydney with a loud rock band who, unfortunately, arrived about three years too early to be fashionably 'grunge'.
As luck would have it, Bow and Davis have some free recording time up their sleeves, but no drummer and bass player. Richard and Peter were happy to assist and a new rock group was born. Entry in the 1992 Sydney University band competition gave the chaps their first opportunity for public showing off, and the need for a name. Thus, Front End Loader was chosen as a ridiculous, strictly temporary title, until something better came up. Ha! As it turned out, the newly named FEL made the final, along with a scruffy bunch of local louts named Frenzal Rhomb.
