Consumed is an English punk rock band formed in 1994 in the outskirts of Nottingham. It primarily consisted of brothers Steve and Mike Ford who provided the songwriting, vocals and guitars and drummer Chris Billam. They were signed to Fat Wreck Chords, then moved to BYO Records and Golf Records shortly before the release of the final album Pistols at Dawn. The band toured the UK, Europe, Scandinavia, the U.S. and Canada and were also regulars at surf and skate festivals in the mid- to late-1990s.[1] They pioneered the late 1990s/early 2000s UK, fast Skate Punk scene that also saw bands like Phinius Gage and 4ft Fingers emerge.
