With a new album under their belt, Mark, Ralph and Bernard started rehearsals for playing live. It was decided early on that the live sound would benefit from a fourth member. Nico Watts was invited along to a rehearsal and immediately signed on to be that fourth member. With only 2 weeks to go before The Opposition were to make a Live Return at SoundEdit in Poland, Ralph was forced to quit the band for personal reasons. Fortunately, David Beckett who had some history with the band (he roadied early on and played on the Storyville album with Mark) stepped in to complete the line-up from here on in.
