Short-lived rock duo formed by York-born singer/guitarist Cliff Wade and drummer Geoff Gill, formerly of the Smoke ("My Friend Jack"). They lasted long enough to release a pair of singles and an LP on the Aura label, before Wade and Gill turned to the more lucrative field of songwriting and scored a hit in the hands of Pat Benatar with "Heartbreaker" a year later. Both also worked with singer Jenny Darren, and Gill went on to work with the Euro-disco outfit Boney M., who had a modest hit with a cover of "My Friend Jack" at the outset of the 1980s.
