Biography
The Titanic Survivors started life long ago in 1979. Initially the line up was Chris Packham, Simon Olden, Gordon McGregor and brother Graham McGregor. Simon soon left to join Southampton punks Strate Jacket, and Chris became the TV presenter/nature type person that we all know today.
Gordon and Graham then joined forces with school pal Paul Longland and permanent stand-in Graham Hammond on bass. Their First Gig was July 1981 at the Solent Suite in Southampton…what a night! More gigs followed at Club Manhattan and The Joiners in Southampton in those earliest days.

The band then went through a difficult period of everybody leaving! Gordon focused his musical efforts on the new (at that time) medium of home multitrack recording. Graham graduated from the university of band stuff to play with numerous bands over the next 20 years.

A renewed interest was sparked in the Survivors Project after so many dormant years and in 2007 the Titanic Survivors rose from the ashes of their previous incarnation, All local band venues in Southampton were played, including The Hobbit, The Talking Heads, The Joiners, and The Railway in Winchester

The Survivors then decided to expand their repertoire to play their favourite covers and get onto the Pub circuit. Immediately the band sound became the formidable three piece mega mod rock sound of today and it was all systems go.

The Titanic Survivors expanded to become a 4 piece again in 2016 when Vocalist Ant Morrison joined.
