Torn & Frayed were a bluesy rock band from Blackpool, Lancashire (UK) during the late eighties and first half of the nineties. The band was made up of several members but the two constant members were Ashley Hurst on lead vocals and rhythm guitar and Andy Roberts on Bass and backing vocals (and occasional lead vocal).

Other members at various times were a lad called Dave from Rotenstall on drums, Dave McCrudden from Thornton on guitar, Alan Hackney from Lytham (and later Sheffield) on Drums, Nick Cottam from Blackpool on drums (we had problems with drummers), Pete Hughes from Bispham on keyboard, Dan Hoffman on lead vocals, Embryo on guitar, and Danny Horsefield from Rochdale (god know where he is now) on lead guitar.
