Notes:
– Formed in 1980 and lasted until late in 1985. Reformed in 1991 after Danny Spencer’s (d) death to raise funds for the Leukaemia Research Fund. The reformed line-up went on until the late 1990s
– In recent years the original line-up of the band gathered in the studio to re-work some old tapes from the mid 1980s with the use of drum recordings of the late Danny Spencer. This resulted to an album called “After The Fire” which is due for release.
