A Saturday morning, June, 2002... Slaine was filming for a skateboarding video. He awoke, fresh and phoned his two friends, Chops and Friers, and arranged to meet up to film and skate for the day. Chops and Friers happened to be one street away in a friends house, so Slaine skated round the corner and rang the doorbell... no answer... he opened the letterbox and could see Chops and Friers, and a 24pack of Amsterdam Gold at their feet, plus a few empty bottles of Buckfast... Chops turned to Friers and said "Why the hell do we have to skate for this video anyway? It's not as if we're ever gonna be in a team..." bent forward and opened a fresh can of Amsterdam, offered one to Friers who accepted. Chops asked, "You fresh?", to which Friers answered "Aye! Team Fresh!"
And so it all began. Since that auspicious inception TF have gone on to conquer Northern Ireland with their own ascerbic brand of punk-inspired funk, picking up rave reviews along the way. Jackie Hayden of Ireland's national music magazine HotPress thanked them for making "life worth living again" while local hang-out Kellys' of Portrush hired pirates and ninjas to track down these anarchic artists who rebelled against the Liggers' Ball with the Wiggers' Brawl...200 people chanting "fuck Kellys!" at 2am. That's rock, baby, Causeway Rock...
