This is where Noiz Boiz really stand out from the crowd. Whether they are playing to a crowd of one or one hundred they always gave it 100%.

The band gig around the West Country - from Bridport to Bristol - and along the way headline at the launch of two new venues, The Old Pier and Blades in Weston-super-Mare. They also appear in the Rock-It 81 finals at the Granary in Bristol organised by the magazine Out West.

In August 1981, the Boiz are joined by Geoff Crofts on keyboards as the band look to expand their sound.

Two months later the Boiz headline at the launch of The Old Pier as a music venue. A crowd of 300 make the long walk up the pier and the planks survive a good po-going. Punk legends Chelsea also play at the pier (using Noiz Boiz PA). Despite continuing good attendances, the promoter pulls the plug following minor disturbances at a Theatre of Hate gig. Weston loses yet another venue.

In early 1982, Ian leaves the band and is replaced by Paul (Tank) Griffiths ex Negative Earth. The band help to launch live music at alternative nightclub Blades but this venue is also short-lived when the owner disappears one day with the takings (allegedly).
