In 1984, Siege went into Radiobeat studios to record a demo with Lou Giordano. The tape made its way through the hardcore punk underground, and clearly made an impression on Pushead for one, who included Siege on his seminal 1985 compilation Cleanse the Bacteria. The three songs on this record were to be the only "official" release by the band until Relapse put out their demo in 1993.
Siege called it quits a year or so later. Afterwords, Rob Williams played drums in Nightstick, a Sabbath-influenced band from Massachusetts. In the early 90's, Siege reformed with Seth Putnam (of Anal Cunt) replacing Mahoney on vocals, although the band dissolved again fairly soon after. At the moment, Williams and Putnam are collaborating with saxophonist Jim Hobbs and guitarist Chris Joyce, performing and recording improv noise material under the name The Death's Head Quartet. Kevin Mahoney was last seen doing theatre in Cambridge, MA. There are tentative plans for a commemorative vinyl edition of the Drop Dead demo.
