The line-up comprises ‘The Pump’, plus former Wheezers Johnny Red Tips and Nigel ‘Muddy’ Walters The Pump has released six albums with the Wheeze & Suck Band, and has two Pump solo albums available at gigs and online. The most recent Pump album is ‘Waterside’, recorded with Marcus Holden and The Shack’s Rhonda Mawer.
