2006. Reformed Faction is a musical group formed in 2005
by three former members of Zoviet France: Andy Eardley,
Mark Spybey and Robin Storey (aka Rapoon). The band's original name
was The Reformed Faction of Soviet France. They played
one concert, in Vienna on 10 November 2005, and released
a self-titled album on Klanggalerie under that name.
In 2006, they announced that they were to continue the
project under the name Reformed Faction in order to
avoid possible future legal disputes with other former
members of Zoviet France. The album has been re-pressed
under the Reformed Faction name with the title Vota.
More than a decade after :zoviet*france: members Robin Storey (Rapoon), Mark Spybey (Dead Voices on Air) and Andrew Eardley (Delayer) left the band, the three have teamed up for a new group: Reformed Faction is a 21st century version of this important group with a unique sound that combines the old :zoviet*france: style with modern technology and a fresh wind blowing from the North of England.
