    Thanks to nwobhmgr for pointing me to the band!

    Local act formed as PHORAX, who changed their name to BLACKOUT in 1980 by Sandy Black (vocals), Dougie Herd (guitar), Chris Maitland (bass), Toni Tkocz (guitar) & Ian Wallace (drums ). Constant gigging allowed them to build up a local following before Maitland & Tkocz left to form PASSIM. Bass player Donald Bowie joined briefly before leaving himself to join MOTHER'S RUIN, and later that year they returned to full strength with the recruitement of Alan Burns (bass) & the legendary Shad (keyboards, ex-DIRTY DUCK). This line-up continued until 1986, releasing a single, "Is There Anything?" in 1984, which they sold from an ice cream van. During this time the members also moonlighted in other groups, with Black in BRAHN SEER, Burns & Wallace in THE BREAKFAST BOYZ, Burns & Wallace with MIKIFIN, Wallace also with TIME AND A HALF and STARFLEET COMMAND, and Shad with his own act, SHAD & THE PINEAPPLES. Once the band split Burns and Wallace formed the short lived LESSON ONE, and were later re-united with Herd in THE COTTON TRAIN. Black played harmonica with THE SMOKEHOUSE BLUES BAND whilst also fronting his own act THE PALMERS, and Shad joined Ayrshire blues act THE RHYMES.

    Last Known Line-Up:
    Sandy Black - Vocals (Brahn Seer, The Palmers, The Smokehouse Blues Band)
    Dougie Herd - Guitar (The Cotton Train)
    Ian Wallace - Drums (The Breakfast Boyz, Mikifin, Time And A Half, Starfleet Command, The Cotton Train)
    Alan Burns - Bass (The Breakfast Boyz, Mikifin, Lesson One)
    Shad - Keyboards (Dirty Ducks, Lesson One, The Rhymes, Shad & The Pineapples, Shad T. Rack Band, The Cotton Train)

    Past Members:
    Donald Bowie - Bass (Mother's Ruin)
    Chris Maitland - Bass (Passim)
    Toni Tkocz - Guitar (Passim)
