In the beginning (the very early 1980s) there was Mervyn Sprocket and the Crankshaft Assembly. The band was renamed as Salt Solution and continued through the 80s and into the 90s. In the subsequent millenium Martin Day teamed up with Rich Milner and together they worked on the Sharp to the Flat musical. When that was near completion they continued to work together producing pop, rock and electro music and decided to reclaim the Mervyn Sprocket name releasing several track under that moniker.
