Artist Biography

Canadian heavy metal trio with a strong blues influence, formed in 1980 by guitarist and vocalist Rick Santers and his brother Mark on drums, together with their friend, Rick Lazaroff, on bass. Aside from playing numerous concerts and recording their debut album in 1981, Rick Santers was in demand as a session player and, in particular, helped fellow Canadian Lee Aaron with her demos and first album. In 1982 Santers the band picked up a European licensing contract with Heavy Metal Records who released Racing Time in December. This featured some fine guitar work, especially on the tracks ‘Mistreatin’ Heart’ and ‘Hard Time Loving You’. Their last album was released two years later, before Rick decided to return to session work.
