Murdock was arguably the most popular band to emerge from the Torbay area since Muse, drawing large crowds of young fans to their live shows. They eventually won the now-legendary Hideaway Battle of the Bands contest in 2001. Original classics such as Girlfriend in a Coma and their splendid cover of the theme tune for Only Fools and Horses were guaranteed to fill the dancefloor.

The band consisted of four talented, good-looking young guys who always played their music with a great sense of fun and virtuosity whilst never taking themselves too seriously.

Paul Russell: vocals, guitar
Adam Hughes: bass
Peter Haig: drums
David Breeze: lead guitar

The three songs you can enjoy here form their Night Vision demo.

Lyrics by Paul Russell, music by Murdock.
