Steerpike were formed in early 1992 and went through several line-ups until they finally disbanded in mid-1994. The initial line-up (March - July 1992) consisted of:
  • Richard Longley (vocals, guitar and keyboards)
  • Matt Humphrey (guitar, vocals)
  • Garen Ewing (bass guitar)
  • Clive Wright (drums)

This line-up played 16 gigs including a fair number of cover versions (original material increased as they went on), and these cover version included four songs by The Cure, another local band.
