Novacain Tongue formed towards the end of 1994 and lasted until the summer of 1995. Another rock blues band with a 50/50 split between covers and original material. The band was made of Ian (lead vocals), ex-Mofo Paul Shepheard (guitar), Andrew McCartney Donaldson (lead guitar), Amanda Larkman (bass guitar) and Mark Greenleaf (drums).
The band fell apart after an argument between Ian and Mark, although they made up since! Ian then went solo for a couple of years doing gigs at The Ferryman Tavern, Drakes, The Hogs Head, Yorks and other pubs in Maidstone, Kent.
Ian's next band 'Barbeque Thing' was formed in 1998. A line up of Ian "Robin Limelight" Ingles (lead vocals), James "Flobber" "Phil Allgaps" Fosberry (electric guitar), Bobby "Willy Everswing" Langridge (drums) and Tom "Lester Play" Langridge (bass guitar).
The band were very popular playing Indie Rock but split up shortly after the guitarist's girlfriend ran off with the bass player!

Ian joined 'Vince Vortex & The Cucumbers' in 1999 (Punk Rock band) and played along fellow Mofo legend Stephen Piper. This was to last 6 years whilst also playing with The Mofos. He played electric guitar but eventually chucked in the towel to focus more on The Mofos and his solo acoustic project.
Not only is Ian a solo acoustic artist, but also plays in an acoustic trio 'The iband' with fellow Mofos John and Andy. The band write original material and are currently working in the studio producing an album.
With the same line-up the guys also play in an acoustic trio 'The Undercovers' where they play covers acoustically.
