26 January 1986: Swivel Corp and The Larks opened up for The Higsons Source: Jonny Mendelsson via The LARKS

Forming in ’83, the band’s original drummer was replaced by Lain in November, after he responded to an advert. In May ’85, the band entered the University of Surrey Student Band Competition, along with Holy Durex and Fantasy Lies, and won, before the evening was headlined by the Geisha Girls.

Swivel Corp were once described as the “Talking Heads” of Surrey University and they supported, along with The Larks, The Higsons on their penultimate gig at the University of Surrey’s No-Wave Society’s main hall gig on 25 January 1986. The band undertook a couple of studion sessions, but no recordings have been uncovered as yet and were the bridesmaid at performance at the Portsmouth Polytechnic as well as University of Surrey. They disbanded in mid-’86.

Lain is currently drumming with Farnham based Hurly Burly.
