About BAiT

Coventry-based BAiT was an original rock band, which performed songs featuring strong and melodic harmonies and innovative arrangements.

Originally formed in 1996, the band featured nine line-ups throughout its existence, culminating in its strongest line-up, featuring Chris Johnson (ex Cherry Stones) on guitars, Nick Nugent (ex State Of The Art) on keyboards, founder members Andy Pitcher on bass guitar and John Chivers on drums.

Their sound comprised driving guitars, vintage synth sounds, and a solid and tight rhythm section, while their songs had a contemporary sound, played against a solid, classic rock background.

The band recorded five albums in total:

  • Not In My Back Yard (2000)
  • Shut Up And Take A Seat (2002)
  • South Of The Delta (2004)
  • The Full English (2005)
