Litmus (then called Paul) met his bosom buddy Martin, who knew soon to be also bosom buddy Scotty and they formed 'Vacant Lot' & later 'Spontin' with drummer Neil Diplock

then later Scotty met singer Al, who was a good mate of Dirk's and soon the 'Raiders jigsaw fell into place...


In loving memory of Neil Diplock (sadly missed) who played a major part in this story


The 'Raiders studio album "They Can't Take What You Haven't Got" came out on May 5th 2006 Gregorian
