Band Members

Kirk Brandon
Born August 3, 1956.Founding member of TOH after being in the bands Stigmata, The Caine, and The Pack.

Simon Werner
Played guitar for Stone Crazy and The Skulls before joining The Pack. He played in TOH until after Original Sin was released.

Jonathan Werner
Bass player for The Pack and brother of Simon Werner. Replaced by Steve Guthrie.

Jim Walker
Drummer for The Furies and then Public Image Ltd. with Johnny Rotten until he joined The Pack. Did not make the transition to TOH

Jamie Stewart ?
Several sources claim that it was Jamie from Crisis who replaced Jonathan Werner before Stan joined the band. After TOH he went on to Ritual before joining the Death Cult, and The Cult.

Luke Rendel
Drummer for TOH until Nigel Preston was brought in.

Stan Stammers
Bassist from The Straps, replaced either Jamie Stuart or Jonathan Werner in TOH. Stan was there in time for the first TOH concert where he fell off stage. He stuck with Kirk as bass player up until 1986 when he formed the retro-rock Crazy Pink Revolvers. He reappeared in the 90's for The Marquee appearance, as well as the TOH tour, Law, and 10:51 before then went on his own with Boy Boy Nova and The Plastic Eaters. Stans bass playing made up a good deal of the songs for TOH, since many relied on bass rather then guitar for their sound.

Steve Guthrie
Replaced Simon Werner on guitar and then disapeared.

John Boy Leonnard
A classically trained saxaphonist, John brought plenty to TOH's sound. After TOH he formed The Diodes, and then popped up briefly for Prisoner of Love. He reappeared for Law and the following tour. John was also a professional Canadian squash player.

Billy Duffy
Guitar player from Lonesome No More before joining TOH. Although his picture is on the Westworld CD, his guitar work is only featured on The Hop single. Left to join The Death Cult and then The Cult where he became one of the more famous guitar players of the 80's. He is currently reunited with The Cult.

Nigel Preston
TOH's best drummer, allegedly kicked out for falling asleep at the drum set and drug problems. He went on to drum for The Sex Gang Children(named after an early Boy George project).

Mick Jones
Guitarist for The Clash. Played guitar on a good amount of Westworld as well as producing it.

Chris Bell
Drummer from King Trigger and then Thompson Twins before joining SOD. The picture on the back of the Grapes of Wrath LP truely does him no justice, as he did not have curly hair, and in concert didn't look so prissy. Chris's drumming was truely excellent as can be heard on Live at the Ace and The Preacher Live among others. After leaving SOD he went on to The Specimen and then Gene loves Jezebel.

Lascelles James
Sax player from Boney M and Mighty Diamonds. He also produced an album for Ellis Alton. When he joined SOD he brought his own unique style to the table. James was probably the most vocal member that SOD had besides Kirk himself. Unfortunately replaced by Lennard for Prisoner of Love. James went on to play sax for reggae stars Dennis Brown and The Status Crew.

Brian "Dolphin" Taylor
The drummer from The Tom Robinson Band and Stiff Little Fingers. SOD's best drummer, with a knack for changing up the beat during the songs.

After the lineup change, Taylor rejoined Stiff Little Fingers, where he remained until 1996 when he quit to spend more time with his family.

Neil "Old Bluff" Pyzer
Keyboard player for Howard Devoto and The Case. Initially played keyboards for SOD in mid-83 and then took up the saxaphone when Lennard left. Pyzer played keyboards primarily, although he played sax on Land of Shame, midway through Once in Her Life Time, The Wheel, The beginning and end of Rainmaker, and the videos for Prisoner of Love and All My Love, although live he didn't play the sax on those songs. After leaving SOD, Pyzer popped up briefly in Crazy Pink Revolvers.

Mickey Donnelly
Played sax in The Case with Pyzer, then joined SOD right after Lennard left. In SOD Mickey played sax except on Young Men and whole World Waiting when he played the flute, Somewhere in the East where he played the clarinet, and Westworld, Original Sin, and parts of Liberator where he played the drums along with Taylor. When he wasn't playing sax, Mickey was playing various percussion instruments. Made a brief appearance in Crazy Pink Revolvers after SOD.
