Theatre of Hate are a british post-punk band formed in 1980. Led by singer-songwriter Kirk Brandon (formerly of the Pack), the original group also consisted of guitarist Steve Guthrie, bassist Stan Stammers (formerly of the Straps and the Epileptics), saxophonist John "Boy" Lennard and drummer Luke Rendle (formerly of Crisis and the Straps). In 1980, the Pack ended and Theatre of Hate were formed, with Luke Rendle on drums, Stan Stammers joining on bass, Steve Guthrie on guitar and John "Boy" Lennard on sax (the Werner brothers joined the Straps, who Stammers had previously played for). The first Theatre of Hate release was the "Original Sin" single in November 1980, which reached No. 5 on the UK Indie Chart. " It was followed by "Rebel Without a Brain" in April 1981, and "Nero" in July. They garnered much early attention as a live act and made their full-length debut in 1981 with the live album He Who Dares Wins (Live at the Warehouse Leeds), released on vinyl on their own Burning Rome label. Guthrie left the band shortly after the album's release. Another live recording followed, Live at the Lyceum, issued on cassette, also in 1981. In August 1981, Theatre of Hate entered the studio with producer Mick Jones of the Clash to record their first non-live album, Westworld, released on 19 February 1982 by Burning Rome. Shortly after the album was recorded, new guitarist Billy Duffy (formerly of the Nosebleeds) joined the band, and soon after that, drummer Rendle was replaced by Nigel Preston. THEATRE OF HATE disbanded in 1983 and reformed in 2005 until nowadays.
