After the split of Dementia, Pete Hurst (the drummer with the band, formerly with Dance Ritual, Green Cube, Patterns, Marshmallow Overcoat) spent some time with Mr. Toad and The Naughty Majorcans. During his time with the band Hurts worked on some solo material, which saw the light of day on the Compilation Ways to Wear Coats (the numbers Through The Binoculars Of The People and End (with, Brian N. Smithers) see relevant post). In the same period Hurts worked with Pete Pulford on some demos.
Pre-Whiskey Priests Demo (ca. 1985)
- Witchcraft and Communism
- Woman in Red 24
Soon after came the Whiskey Priests.
