Starting Out Edit
Wells had stated that he wished to form a band to some of his friends, which was met with mockery. After negetive reviews on his second techno album, he bought a bass guitar and contacted guitarist Rhodes with a proposal to start a band. Rhodes agreed, and the first incarnation of Volt 240 was formed, "Royal Flush."
Addition of David Rhodes Edit
After just one practice session, the two hired Rhodes younger brother Dave to play rythem guitar. It was also around this time that the band changed its name to Volt 240. With the addition of Dave, the band felt they were ready to go public, and launched their Pure Volume page. Since they had very few recordings as a group, Wells recording his own demo tracks, "To Space", an acoustic demo and "Salvage", and placed them on their website.
Following an arguement with an investor, the band dissolved. It was during this time that Wells decided to record a solo album, using only his bass and a drum machine. About half way through recording, the band got back together to produce a demo CD.
