Line Up
Nick Brent (v,g) – also in Zilch, Stone Lady and Apocalypse
Steve Grainger (g,k,v) – also in Left Hand, Phaze and Apocalypse
Dave Robertson (b) – also in Apocalypse
Graham Roberts (d)

Notes:
– The continuation of Apocalypse who had to change the name due to legal reasons.
– Contributed the song ‘Blood Sacrifice’ to the compilation “Metal Warriors” (LP, Ebony Records, 1983). Had to sleep outside in their vans in freezing cold the night before the recording of this track.
– For some time they were managed by Gerry Floyd who was a resident DJ at the Marquee. During this time they recorded the ‘Alpha’ demo which was used primarily as a means to approach labels and publishers. Unfortunately Gerry Floyd passed away shortly after and any plans made were put aside.
– Omega lasted until 1988 around Steve Grainger who was writing and recording with various other musicians on his own studio
