Everybody Knows


Girl (In The Purple Dress)


Fragile Friend


Fat Girl


Lemming Trail

The earliest known demo tape comes from 1986. The remixes on the end are reportedly bizarre sort of dub versions where the vocals pretty much cut in and out at random. It was apparently recorded at the music room of Abingdon School.

The recordings from this tape were the last to surface of all OAF demo tapes. They were uploaded to Youtube from october 2011 onwards by the member Klootme. She explained: “History behind the tape is that my husband was at school with the band and partied with them (before Jonny joined them!). Phil was at Uni with us both in Liverpool. The demo was given to my husband at 17 in school. We used to go and see them play in Oxford and was friends with them. They were fairly inactive from 1987 -1990 as a band. But when everyone had finished Uni they got back together and tried to make a go of it. They went to the States…we went backpacking to India for 6 months. Six months later we retured from India…saw Colin with a binbag full of laundry at the lauderette…..”so much for the States” we laughed…….” I remember seeing them in Oxford where me and my husband made up an audience of 6!”
