Spencer Griffiths (Guitar + Vocals)

Dan Noddle (Bass)
Spencer and Marcus later formed London band NO CODA.
Leigh later joined DECEITFUL BOW / SEVENTYTHREE.
Judging from the 3 tracks on their MySpace page, CHOKE took their influences from the American Alt-Rock scene, and refined them with a British sense of reserve and style. Their songs shift deftly from harder Metal-orientated riffs to more subtle, almost post-rock moments. Occasional odd time signatures reveal a progressive nature, reminiscent in places of TOOL.
The band's original name was THE REAL MEN, but changed their name just before Leigh left the band.
