Formed in 2002 from former bands; Revulsion, Sweet n Innocent & Jetboy. With the original line up of Barlz, Steve Skingsley, Scally Skingsley, Daz Adams & Andy Rope. The sound was pretty much old school punk, albeit speeded up. They managed to Blag some good Gigs early on. Supporting the likes of; Stiff Little Fingers, The Damned, Discharge & a totally Flukey appearance at Punk Aid 2004 (last minute hopeful phone call!) Since then they seem to have stumbled from good gig to good gig with top bands such as; The Dickies, Vibrators, Varukers, Neville Staple (The Specials), Broken Bones, to name but a few. They've also been fortunate enough to play with some Fantastic 'unheard of' Bands, many of whom are their Myspace Friends.
Towards the end of 2005, their 'Guitar God' Scally departed to Australia Permanently, thus leaving them with a hole which seemed un-fillable! then by pure chance, after talking to him at a Party, The band managed to con Chris Peters into joining! More great gigs followed supporting the likes of The Anti Nowhere League, Extreme Noise Terror, UK Subs. Other highlights were playing The Hundred Club on Oxford St for the 30th anniversary of punk and also the punk weekender at Hemsby 2007.
In Sept 2007 Steve moved to Greece to become a fulltime alcoholic, and the remaining Kaotixx continued as a four piece.. The sound tightened up and the songs became faster with a more metal edge. Steve still plays gigs with the band when he’s back in the UK, the last one being in Nov 2008.
The Kaotixx are the laziest band in the world and although not officially split, they havn’t done anything for a while, nor plan to at this point in time. However, watch this space.
