Steve was the oldest member of The Mofos. Steve is most famous for a previous band role in The Krewmen during the late 1980s/ early 1990s.  The Krewmen were a Psychobilly band signed to 'Cherry Red Records' and had a huge global following.  The band released numerous albums and videos and toured the world.  They were particularly well known in the UK, US, Germany and Japan.

Steve initially was drafted in to play drums for The Krewmen, but later on progressed onto electric guitar.  One of The Krewmen's more well known tracks was ironically called 'Legend of The Piper'.  Rather fitting seeing as Shag is somewhat of a legend!

Previous to this, Steve also played lead guitar in a band called 'Them Howlin' Horrors' between 1984 and 1986.  


The band were signed to Criminal Damage Records and released a 12" single (EP) called 'Dig Down Deeper' and an album '(Look Out! For) The Changing Tide.


At the time, the album scored 5 stars in Sounds magazine.
