Tramp Attack formed in Liverpool at the turn of the century, and the original lineup included the future leader of The Zutons Dave McCabe; as well as Hollyoaks and Brookside actor Kristian Ealey.

The band's original line-up had a single released by Honey Records in 2001, but the band would soon split. A reformed lineup was briefly known as The Mother Lovers, and one song, Rex, was released under that name on an acoustic compilation album.

Tramp Attack then returned, led by Matt Barton, and played several sell-out gigs at The Bandwagon night held at The Zanzibar Club in Liverpool. Liverpool at the time was attracting much interest from record labels large and small, and Tramp Attack proceeded to release records through the London-based Must Destroy record label, such as the band's first album 'Attack, Attack, Attack...'

In the summer of 2006 the band's second album 'Call In Sick' was released on The Viper Label. The band, despite a brief break-up at the start of 2007, continue to perform throughout the city of Liverpool and further afield, such as at the Coniston Festival.
