Andro Coulton was originally bass guitarist with the legendary NWOBHM band Witchfynde from 1975 – 1980.  Witchfynde have influenced bands such as:- Metallica and Bauhaus. Witchfynde not only  toured with Def Leppard on their first UK headlining tour but also played with bands such as Thin Lizzy, Girl School, Saxon and Iron Maiden to name but a few. During this time the band recorded their first album Give’em Hell with Andro on bass and backing vocals, the album was No1 in the UK music weekly Sounds independent chart for many weeks and the CD re-release of this album was voted no 25 in the best re-released albums of 2005 by Classic Rock magazine in the UK.  Andro was also bass guitarist on three tracks of Witchfynde’s second album Stagefright before leaving the band. 

His next projects after Witchfynde were as leader of the early 80’s bands Malleus and Sabotage where he teamed up with his future wife Shaz.

The idea for the band was conceived in 2010 as a vehicle to continue the song writing talents of Shaz and Andro Coulton after their previous band Prophets For The Damned unfortunately came to an end with guitarist Nick Higgins and Drummer Kirsty Coulton leaving the band because of college commitments. This has now culminated in the recording of the single White Noise. The single was recorded in the same not overly produced way that bands such as early Black Sabbath, Hawkwind, Pink Fairies, Grand Funk Railroad etc, used so that it has a raw live energetic sound and the album soon to be released is called Evolvalution.
