Singer Ted Waite and gui­tarist Jonathan Beardsworth met at Aire­bor­ough Gram­mar School in 1970 and formed their first band, Gypsy, in 1973.

By 1975 Beardsworth was play­ing with drum­mer Colin McCaig and bass gui­tarist Paul Hart-Woods, Waite was asked to join and they be­came Orion.

They were joined in 1976 by gui­tarist An­thony Peart and they started writ­ing their own songs, af­ter be­ing in­spired by Elvis Costello’s al­bum My Aim is True.

They made their first demo as City Lim­its in 1979 at the Ric Rac stu­dio in Leeds.

Their al­bum To Hull and Back was re­leased in 2016.
