At a party in 1983, Keith and Craig (Cloudburst sound man and back-up drummer) decided to form a covers band. Albino Dinnerjacket was put together, recruiting former Cloudburst bandmates Steve and Gordon, and keyboardist Pat.
They gave themselves ridiculous stage names, and adopted an anthropomorphic rabbit as the band logo. They performed in Darwen that summer.
Keith and Gordon continued to compose and record original material during this period, and produced a demo compilation, It’s My Ambition to Pull the Plug Out at a Heavy Metal Show.
A year later, Keith, Craig, and Gordon would form Back to the Grind with Psychopython bassist Michael Brandon.
