From theirMyspace " The G-men have been through many changes since their humble beginnings back in the late 1980’s. They had rose from the ashes of ska band the Restrictors who had gained mass popularity in the North East of England with their up-beat shows. The G-men played their first gig in January 1990 at the Coatham Hotel in Redcar, it was during this show that the infamous inflatable Newcastle Brown Ale Bottle was first introduced to an unsuspecting audience to coincide with their signature tune “Bottle Of Dog”. After the usual start for most bands playing gigs locally the G-Men started to look further a field gaining support slots with acts such as Bad Manners, The International Beat, The Nutty Boys and the Trojans to name but a few. It was the success of these shows that gave the band well deserved supporting slots with legends of Ska Laurel Aitken, Judge Dread and Bim Ska La Bim. This then helped them secure a place supporting The Selector on their “Out On The Streets” tour. The band went various through line up changes over the years taken them up to the year 2000 when the band finally released their long awaited debut CD album, 'The G-Files’ on Northern Sky records. Their last performance was in April 2002; although this was not meant to be the last gig, things just sort of went their own way after that gig and the band drifted apart. During summer 2007 Dins decided to put together a new band so along with Andy from Last Rough Cause, Laze from Major Accident and ex G-man Dell rehearsals began. Fate then took a slight twist, during one drunken session and at Dell’s insistence the band performed a few G – men songs and so it began. Mark was asked to join the band for the next rehearsal and the G-men were reborn. "

"This is Dave's Big Deluxe's only vinyl 45 release. The A-Side is an edited version of What I Used to Be and the B-Side is a cover of Johnny Too Bad. It's one of the best recordings we ever made, not available anywhere else.
Also included is a soundboard recording of our live set from the University of Arizona's Spring Fling c. 1994 or 95 I think. It was basically the Sounds From the Credenza album live with a couple tunes we never recorded in a studio. Good energy, but pretty rough (we were just figuring a lot of things out).
I have one more live recording from a radio program which I'll up if anyone is interested. It's from around the time of Miss Fortune/Live at University High and is actually pretty good."
