Prior to joining Godflesh, Justin was involved in several bands. Fall of Because, Head of David and Napalm Death.
Fall of Because
FoB consisted of Paul Neville and Ben Green until 1983 when Justin joined. The material written during the band's 4 year lifetime was the base of much of early Godflesh. Life is Easy,
Mighty Trust Krusher and Merciless were all originally Fall of Because songs. Additionally, the first 3 minutes of Love, Hate (Slugbaiting) from Pure was actually FoB live.
Justin played drums in FoB, Paul Neville was on guitars.

Head of David released 2 albums prior
to Justin's arrival in 1986. Justin had been playing for
Napalm Death as well as
Fall of Because.
At a split concert of those two bands,
HoD asked him to join. He left
ND about two weeks after joining the band
but still continued to drum for FoB.
Justin played drums for them for about 2 1/2 years before leaving to form Godflesh. At this time Dave Cochrane left as well. He appeared on only one album during that time. A remix album and a Peel Session album came out after his departure, both still featuring him on drums. The band continued on to record 1 more record, and then split up.
