Fooog Dinboffin and the Release

This bizarrely named act, Fooog Dinboffin and the Release, consisted of Simon and George both on guitar and vocals. Simon, a man of many names, became known as Fooog Dinboffin for some years, although nobody ever called George ‘The Release’ (he was quite glad about that because it would have been a bit odd). The two of them played together in Exeter High Street from time to time in order to make a few pence, try out new songs and maybe meet some girls. Unfortunately, they only really managed to try out a few songs, although one out of three wasn’t too bad for them at that time.

Fooog Dinboffin and the Release started around May 1982 after the demise of Achilles Heel, the first band that Simon and George had played in together. Fooog Dinboffin and the Release lasted throughout the Everyone period and continued until the formation of Now in the autumn of 1982.
