Leigh had previously played in THE REAL MEN / CHOKE.

Richard later joined Whitstable-based Alternative band STAIN.

Jez later played in London band THE BLACK MARIAH (MySpace page).

DECEITFUL BOW's sound was a very unique combination of soulful PEARL JAM-esque vocals over angular but funky guitar riffs. The guitarist Gavin was especially memorable for the way that he would throw himself around the stage in almost Hardcore abandon, teasing colourful, overdriven Jazz chords out of his unusually carved guitar.

Gavin Bush is Kate Bush's nephew. Rumour also has it that he was totally tone-deaf, and played by theory alone.

In 1995 the band changed their name to SEVENTYTHREE.
