Altern-8 tunes influencing many artists, with their mixture of the sounds of the Roland TB-303, 808 and 909 with breakbeats and familiar samples. At the time in the UK, outdoor rave events were legal, and Altern-8 had a reputation for turning up to play at major unofficial events. They helped to define harder house tracks relying more heavily on bass and volume. The use of more bass and eclectic noises gradually evolved Altern-8’s music away from the earlier house music style. The duo, dressed in chemical warfare suits and dancing “like electrified monkeys”, took part in a large number of live performances.
Notable Altern-8 tracks included “Activ-8”, “E-vapor-8”, “Frequency”, “Brutal-8-E”, “Armageddon”, “Move My Body”, “Hypnotic St-8” and “Infiltrate 202”. The band released an album on the Network Records label in 1992, called Full On… Mask Hysteria. In 1991, the band did a live PA in the car park outside the then famous Shelley’s night club in Longton, Stoke-on-Trent (near to their home town of Stafford). This can be seen in their “Activ-8 (Come With Me)” video.
However when hardcore-styled rave music went out of fashion, they started to get involved in the development of commercial house music.In 1992, Peat stood as a candidate for the Stafford constituency in the General Election representing the Hardcore (Altern8-ive) party. He received 158 votes and finished in fourth place.
In 1993, Archer began producing billed as Slo-Moshun, responsible for the hits “Bells of NY” and “Help My Friend”.
In 1994, Peat and Archer parted ways. Archer continued to DJ under the name Altern-8 until 2009 when Peat threatened legal action against him
