History:

IC logo were formed in March, 1998, when they were called The Well-Respected Men in honour of The Kinks, and the intention was to be a Kinks tribute band. The brief was soon widened to British bands of the '60s. The original three members were Chris, Graham Jones & Dean, who had all worked together on many productions of the Village Pantomime. The aim was to perform a small set at the private party after the last night of 1998's pantomime. In the autumn, they were joined by Graham Toon (another panto veteran). In November, they were fortunate to meet Hannah, who was staying in the village until the New Year. She was an experienced vocalist and sang with them  at their first gig. In the summer of 1999 the name was changed to Who The....?. Since then, the band has decided to widen the repertoire to include danceable rock music from the 70s to the 90s, in order to perform a varied set on New Year's Eve. In September 1999 they were joined by Sasha, an old acquaintance of Dean, who provides additional vocals and has taken the lead on some songs, in order to allow Chris to concentrate on the guitar. On New Year's Eve, 1999 the band played at a private party in Exminster. The event was even reported in the Exeter Express & Echo (click here to read the article). In April 2000, Dean played drums on a private recording, 'Route 666' by Club Whoopee. On the 8th of July, 2000, Sasha & Dean formed part of an off-the-cuff band at a private party in Somerset, and by coincidence Graham J joined in with the band 'Rock of Ages' at a private party in Bristol.
new During August they played at another private party, at which time they announced that the name of the band was changing to 'Identity Crisis' . The first gig under this name was performed at a pub in Exmouth, Devon, to a party of Czech students!
In June 2001 Graham Toon announced that he would be out of circulation for while for medical reasons, so Chris' son James offered to replace him for the August performance, which was a success for James. At the 2nd September gig, we were pleased to welcome Graham Toon back after his operation.
In May 2002 Sasha sang with us for the last time, as we entertained French visitors from Exminster's twin village Sannerville.
In August, the 4-piece band performed at Chris' 50th birthday.
In May 2006 we once again entertained our French visitors from Sannerville. This time there was also a revue, based on past village pantomimes, so Dean played the drums.
In November 2006, Graham Toon played at a private party. Also present was Vince Eager.
In February 2008, we started looking for a stand-in bass player, to fulfil our gig at the end of June, while Graham had an operation. In March we found an experienced player, John Petherick, who started to rehearse with us. He played for us for the final time at Dolphin in Kenton on the 20th April 2009, Graham Toon having resigned from the band in July 2008.
In June 2010 we are started working with Harry Green, ex-Exeter Tornadoes, to see how things would work out. We played our first gig with him on the 20th November at the Dolphin in Kenton.
On the 27th November, Dean sat in for a new band called Colours of Corruption at the last-night party of the village pantomime.
After about a year with us, in November 2011 Harry decided to leave, to pursue more substantial musical activities.
In February 2012 our advert in the village magazine (Scene in Exminster) was answered by Colin Wooding, a fellow villager who had been wanting to join a band for some time.
