Restricted Code is a band that was formed in 1978 by Tom Cannavan and Frank Quadrelli. School friends from Easterhouse in Glasgow, they had written songs together and played in various school bands. After discovering punk music they went on to create Restricted Code. The post-punk band released three records, recorded John Peel and other BBC Radio sessions, and toured extensively. The original band called it a day late in 1981.


The band re-formed in 2018 with all four original members: songwriting partnership Tom and Frank, Kenny Blythe on bass, and drummer Robert Mccormick. Robert now plays keyboards, so the band became a five-piece for the first time with old friend Les Gaff, formerly of Glaswegian band Positive Noise, on drums. They love making music again, with stream of new material emerging. The band is already playing selected gigs and plans to record soon.
