Vice Squad

Historia

Vice Squad es una banda liderada por Rebecca Bond, alias Beki Bondage, que se formó en Bristol en 1978, en plena segunda oleada del punk británico. El line-up original estaba formado además de Beki en la voz, por el guitarrista Dave Bateman, Mark Hambly al bajo y Shane Baldwin a la batería.
Vice Squad firmo con EMI, con quienes licenciaron el primer single y editaron en 1981 el primer LP de la banda, "No cause for concern".Seis meses después aparece otro LP, "Stand strong stand proud", muy bien trabajado y con una buena dosis de grandes canciones.
En esta época se hacen evidentes los problemas y tensiones en el seno de la banda, especialmente por la discordancia de opiniones respecto a EMI. Las tensiones aumentan con la radicalización de Beki, que emprende campañas a favor de la liberación animal y deja la banda. Vice Squad continúan con otra cantante (Lia) y otro guitarra editando un álbum más en 1985, pero ya no es lo mismo. "Shot Away", lanzado en 1984, fue el único disco de Vice Squad que no contó con la voz de Beki Bondage.
Llegan los noventa y con ellos la resurrección del grupo con Beki Bondage en la voz. Para esta segunda época, la banda hace la rentré discográfica con el CD "Resurrection" que contiene los clásicos de toda la vida totalmente regrabados y evidentemente remasterizados.
Ya en 2001 aparece un mini CD titulado "Lavender hill mob", que será anticipo del CD de larga duración titulado "Lo-fi life". En el mismo, la nueva formación ha madurado y conseguido un sonido más firme y contundente que en su anterior grabación. El line-up actual lo forman Beki a la voz y guitarra, Paul Rooney a la guitarra, Michael Gianquinto al bajo y Tony "Noise" Piper a la batería. Dave Bateman, primer guitarrista y compositor, murió el 12 de diciembre de 2007 en Fuengirola cuando celebraba su 46 cumpleaños.
