They've been going a good few months now and have produced a three track single and some superb live performances, including one at the Colchester Arts Centre in late 2011.
I was at Degrees' first gig last Halloween when Alex drummed whilst covered in fake blood and Patrick had the real life horror situation of having to sing with flu and half a voice. Luckily it was the tuneful, if raspy half, and the performance went down a storm. Since then they've played in and around Chelmsford, most recently on Friday the 13th of this month at Hooga with Missing Andy. They also guested at Point Blank when Gary Powell of the Libertines headlined.
