The Fevers formed in early-1998 from the remains of legendary bands ‘Smack my wolf’ and ‘Warriors of Jiu-Jitsu’. They disbanded in due to artistic differences of having four drummers and one singer before reforming again in late-1998. In 1999 they disbanded due to the difficulties in accommodating four Hammond organs on stage; reforming again shortly afterwards. Over the next fifteen years they reformed and disbanded seven hundred and fifteen times before settling down in 2015. They now consist of Nigel Bishop - guitarist and actual bishop, Dave Nash - bassist and raconteur, Sean McAuley - guitarist, keyboardist and Peaky Blinder, Jerry Sullivan - drummer and Olympic cyclist, and John McManus - scissors, vocalist and megalomaniac. As one of the top punk bands in the South Kettering area they play a top selection of punk, ska and new-wave classics - renowned for their tight music, tight harmonies, tight pants and tight wallets."
