aka The Real Men


Thanet, Kent

Band MembersEdit

  • Dan Noddle (bass)

The band's original name was The Real Men, but changed their name just before Leigh left the band.

Judging from the 3 tracks on their MySpace page, Choke took their influences from the American Alt-Rock scene, and refined them with a British sense of reserve and style. Their songs shift deftly from harder Metal-orientated riffs to more subtle, almost post-rock moments. Occasional odd time signatures reveal a progressive nature, reminiscent in places of Tool.
