Formed in 1975 in Peterborough UK, Gobblinz were Steve Dunmore (Drums), Ian Graham (Guitar, lead Vocals), Dave Colton (bass, lead vocals) and Chris Allen (keyboards,vocals). All had spent several years playing clubs and pubs in a previous band but with Ian's songwriting they decided to change direction and went into Beck Studios Wellingborough in 1976 to recorded a demo. The band soon got signed by Pinnacle and their first release 'London' sold well. However after a split with their management the band recorded the Communique EP which is now one of the most sought after 7-inch new wave releases. Ian left the band in late 1978 to form The Name who became well known on the UK Mod scene, Dave joining a few months later.
