Formed by Mick Hucknall in 1976 after seeing the Sex Pistols perform at the Lesser Free Trade Hall in Manchester, England, the Frantic Elevators was a punk rock band with new wave influences that had limited releases on local labels, creating nine songs in total. Although touring and promoting themselves, they received only local attention. However, the band won some critical acclaim for its 1982 final single, "Holding Back The Years", which had a slower and more bluesy tone than many of their other songs. .
