Band Of Pain began as a side project of Splintered, the band which included Steve Pittis. After several vinyl and CD releases, and two John Peel sessions, Steve felt it was time to break away. Before long, Band Of Pain became the main concern, and Splintered split at the end of 1996. Since then Band Of Pain has released numerous records and CD’s. The most recent of these is the CD “¿Que Amiga?” on Cold Spring Records. This CD was listed as one of the Albums of the Year by Terrorizer magazine (9/10). It was the follow up release to the soundtrack to controversial film director, Nigel Wingrove’s movie “Sacred Flesh” (CSR33CD).
