R.A.C.E. (short for "RADIO-ACTIVE CHEMICAL EXPERIMENT") played a brand of energetic Thrash/Punk that was laced with a liberal dose of British eccentricity and humour. Their set combined their own material with a selection of cover songs, including PARADISE LOST's "As I Die", ROCKET FROM THE CRYPT's "On A Rope", and GREEN DAY's "Basket Case".

The band initially went under various names, including HEADRUST, THIS DAMNATION, and BLOODSTONE, before settling on R.A.C.E.

R.A.C.E. evolved into CAPTAIN MILDRED, who are still going strong.
