Short lived Rhyl post-punk band (c1981) formed by Steve Allan Jones & Gary Jones (of Amsterdam) Pete Picton (synth) (Backseat, Units), Glyn Crossley (bass) (ex Pax, Quasimodo), Dave Bradbury (gtr) (ex Units). The X Men played 2 gigs (Lampeter uni & Chester college) going down a storm – very much like new romantics – a year before the London crowd cottoned on! Had 2 tracks, Drive & Go Away on the ‘Systems of Attraction’ comp tape. Decided to move to London but only Pete & Steve got there.
