Originally from Peterborough. Originally called Ophiuchus but changed it to Graph when Nik Allday joined. The band made its debut on the Fast label's first Earcom compilation, alongside the Blank Students, the Prats and the Flowers. Allday left the group near the end of 1979 and was replaced by Pam Young. From that point on, the band was known as Salon Graph. Burden eventually became involved with fellow Sheffield group the Human League. Elliot released a solo single " Fake All Your Dreams" on local Office Box Records.
