    DISTRAINERS originally formed in Leicester UK in 1977 as a three piece.
    The original line up was Dave Roe (Guitar, Vocals), Phil Hammond (Bass & Vocals) and Steve Taylor (Drums, Vocals).
    The band at this time were very influenced by the punk movement that was going on around them.
    Dave left the band in 1978 and a replacement Guitarist in the shape of Pete Bambury was brought in.
    The band had now started to move away from the punkier side of things and by the time of their 1979 three song demo they were being touted as a NWOBHM band.
    Later in 1979 they released the limited edition 7" single “Say Goodbye", (only 300 copies pressed), on the D.J. Records label.
    The band gigged extensively during 1978/79 and built up a reasonable following throughout the UK.
    In addition to their headline gigs, there were a number of support appearances including WITCHFYNDE, WAYNE COUNTY & THE ELECTRIC CHAIRS, LIGHTNING RAIDERS and SAMSON.
    Around this time, there were also regular appearances at The USAF base at Upper Heyford in Oxfordshire where they appeared along with the likes of URCHIN, CHEVY, and SLEDGEHAMMER.
    As the bands sound developed a heavier feel they felt that the name they had chosen was a hindrance (sounding too “new wave”), so the decision was taken to change the name to ALIEN and expand to a four piece at the same time.
    ALIEN continued for a number of years although Steve Taylor left in 1981 to join Northampton NWOBHMers SOLDIER.
    An EP of material recorded in 1980 entitled "Japanned", was released in 2006 on the Headless Corpse label.
    As a result of the positive feedback the EP generated, Phil Hammond and Steve Taylor decided to resurrect the Distrainers, but Hammond soon left to join Leicester band BURN.
    With new personnel on board Distrainers are currently putting together an album called "England's Green Unpleasant Land (1979-1990)".
