In 1981 the band entered Whitehouse Studios in Norwich to record their 1st
real recording session. The 3 tracks laid down that day became the "Young
Offender" 7". The record was a surprise hit in the indie charts and far
outsold the bands expectations. This initial release began a working
relationship with Backs Records in the running of Radical Change Records, a
label dedicated to the promotion of punk/anarchist bands.
Initially The Disrupters had a few hiccups finding the right combo of band
members but from 1983-88 they settled with founder members Bangkok Steve
(Hansell)/Vocals and Kevin Wymer /Drums along with Paul Greener/Guitar,
Steve Hough/Bass and Prem Nick/spoken word tracks.
The band liked to mix actions with words and were actively involved in
various elements of direct action, sometimes ending in arrest and court
The Disrupters called it a day in late 1988, dissalusioned with the ever
growing divide and bitching within the scene, Steve (Vocals) quit to
concentrate on other things and the rest of the band followed suit.
