    Desperate Oates were a 3 piece band based in the wild fenlands of Lincolnshire. The band were formed in the early
    1980's and featured Jake 'Lin Tremayne' Williams (alias John Singing Rock) on guitar and vocals, John Line on bass
    and vocals and Shaun Muffet on drums and vocals. The music was a blend of hard rock and boogie. The band
    gained quite a repertoire in their area and played many gigs over their four year existence. Jake's guitar style was
    influenced at this stage quite a lot by the legendary Steve Zodiac of nwobhm band Vardis. However, the band only
    ever wrote a handful of their own material backed up by heavier versions of covers such as Quo's 'In my chair' and
    Bolan's 'Get it on'. A couple of demo tapes were released and one single. The single gained Desperate Oates some
    respect as it reached no: 50 in the then indie singles chart, as well as having a small review in Sounds magazine.
    Around the beginning of 1987 the band members went their own separate ways. Jake moved to Cornwall and
    formed Chain Lightning. Sadly about 3 years ago John Line the bass player passed away, and Jake and Shaun have
    not been in touch since the band separated. More info at: http://www.chainlightning.co.uk/relatedbands.html
