This UK heavy rock band, based in Southampton, was formed from the ashes of XS and Love Attack. Comprising Jon Francis (vocals), Tim Payne (guitar), Rick Young (keyboards), Martin Walls (bass) and Mark Addison (drums), After Hours specialized in melodic pomp/AOR, although tougher edges were also occasionally apparent. Take Off, their debut, was an excellent collection of songs in the Foreigner / Whitesnake tradition. Afterwards, the line-up fluctuated to accommodate Andy Nye (keyboards, ex-MSG) and Alan Jackman (drums, ex-Outfield), until further sightings became increasingly rare.
