Doom.jpg

Doom are an English hardcore punk band from Birmingham whose first lineup were together from 1987 to 1990. Despite its short existence, the band is considered pivotal in the rise of crust punk, a punk rock style that fuses extreme metal with anarcho-punk. They recorded for Peaceville Records and are cited as an early precursor to grindcore.

Doom began as The Subverters with Jon Pickering (bass/vocals), Bri Doom (guitar) and Jason Hodges (drums). After Jason was replaced by new drummer Mick Harris the band changed its name to Doom.

This lineup played several concerts in a crossover metal style. Bri and Jon decided this wasn't the direction they wanted the band to move in. Consequently, they left the metal style of music and decided to move toward a Discharge-influenced crust punk-style that Doom became known for. At this time, Pickering dropped bass to concentrate on vocals, and Pete Nash replaced him on bass. Harris also left the band and was replaced by Tony "Stick" Dickens. The band began rehearsing with this line-up in mid 1987.

In an interview with the Skinny magazine, published in 2013, drummer Tony "Stick" Dickens, acknowledged the role of Peel in giving the band publicity including getting them to do two sessions for his programme:

"We were gobsmacked when we were asked to do a Peel session …. we were a bunch of blokes on the dole," recalls Stick and "we couldn't afford big fancy studios, so getting paid to record in one of the top studios in the UK was a big thing …. Basically, you got four goes to record a track, so as long as we didn't have a break we could link songs together, he explains and "the two Peel sessions basically formed an album. Got to admit I shed a tear at the news of 'Peelys' death, a great, genuine bloke, still missed" [1]
