– Formed in the late 1970s under the name ‘The Pictures‘. Apparently an album was recorded for Arista Records but never saw the light of day.
– They were never called ‘Arctic Life’. They won a competition which was called “Arctic Lite Rock Search” in 1980 that took place at the London Venue. The won some cash and a recording deal with State Records. The name change happened around the same time with the competition thus the ongoing confusion.
– Opened the 1980 Reading Festival on August 22nd. They played the same day with Praying Mantis, Krokus, Gillan and Rory Gallagher
