Tesco was a graduate who, having failed to emigrate to Canada, had returned to Camberley, Surrey UK, and had been working in a variety of jobs when the opportunity arose to form a band. Linking up with a friend and local guitarist Gary Baker an initial four piece was formed. Tesco soon added trainee merchant banker Jean Marie Carroll, known as JC, to the line up having been a long admirer of his style and songwriting abilities.

The 1977 to 1983 line up was Nicky Tesco (vocals), JC (vocals & guitar), Nigel Bennett (guitar), Chris Payne (bass) and Adrian Lillywhite (drums). That Line up reformed in 2006 to play two shows.
