BMX Bandits were formed in 1985 by songwriter and lead vocalist Duglas T Stewart out of the ashes of The Pretty Flowers, a short-lived group that featured Stewart alongside Frances McKee (The Vaselines), Sean Dickson (The Soup Dragons) and Norman Blake (Teenage Fanclub). Starting with the exuberant E102 in 1986, BMX Bandits released a series of singles on Stephen Pastels' 53rd & 3rd label, where they were label mates with The Vaselines and Beat Happening. Later they joined Alan McGee's Creation Records (going on to release three albums on Creation).

Unavailable on vinyl since it’s release in 1990, the BMX Bandits debut LP, C86,  features Norman Blake, and Francis MacDonald of Teenage Fanclub (with six of the songs co-written with Blake).
