Formation

SECOND SKELETON was originally formed in 2010 by Dave Dimelow who recruited some local musicians until late 2014. The band reformed after a short hiatus in September 2015. Vocalist and Rythm Guitarist Dave Dimelow had suspended the band in 2014 after several line-up changes. When Lead Guitarist Dave Newton contacted Dave D about starting the band up again with new members. Dave D agreed and the decision was made to find a Bassist and Drummer.

Dave N had been in contact with a drummer who knew a Bass

Guitarist looking to join a band. Ian Graham met up with the guys and instantly hit it off with Dave D. Ian joined the band full time and has been an integral part ever since, often dubbed "The Diplomat" due to his easy nature.

The two Dave's and Ian spent a while looking for drummers and various people came forward but just weren't bonding as a part of the band. After posting a few ads an enthusiastic drummer was contacted by Ian and Alan Zebelys entered the ranks of the band.

SECOND SKELETON HAD IT'S BONES!!

 The name of the band came about due to members of the band becoming tired with local musicians who had surrounded themselves with a framework of friends and family telling them how great they were. Giving them a kind of false support and ultimately leading to these musicians becoming "Famous in their own front room". Acting like a "Second Skeleton", initially seeming like a sturdy framework but actually becoming debilitating, making the musicians strive less because they've already achieved self perceived "Greatness" or "Perfection".
