The Abrasive Wheels specialised in the sort of massive rowdy choruses that could put an ear-to-ear smile on the face of a dead man. Like so many of those intense bands of the time, 1980/84 their fire burnt brightly for just a relatively short time, but the shadows it cast, and the colourful musical legacy they bestowed on the punk scene, were both important and influential to many a band that came after them. Thanks to the vitriolic strength of these early releases, the band started to build a large and loyal following of punks and skins the length and breadth of the country. The band reformed in 2003 and has been playing shows in the UK,Europe, Canada, USA.
