Paul answered an ad in Melody Maker to join Mark and Angie of Sheffield bands Fatales and Surface Mutants with Wayne (ex Pulp). Siiiii quickly became known in the UK goth scene, gigging with influential bands such as Skeletal Family, The March Violets, Inca Babies, and The Chameleons. Siiiii recorded several tracks and gained favorable reviews for their performances, however, they were unable to attract a label and disbanded in 1986. Mark Holmes went on to perform and record with The Anti-Group. Paul then worked solo as "Niceville" and subsequently formed avant-garde noise-punk band Deep Valley Orgasm. In 2005, the band regrouped to compile an archival release of initial demos. Siiiii played the last ever Drop Dead Festival in New York, then followed up with a number of European shows. In 2014, Siiiii released Modern, a studio album of new material and in 2017 were featured on the Cherry Red compilation "Silhouettes & Statues".
