As punk sent an electric shock through a complacent late 70s UK music scene, major labels were to be found hurriedly signing acts regardless of ability. London, like many other second division new wavers, were scooped up only to disappear after all the fuss had died down. Two releases in 1977, ‘Everyone’s A Winner’ and ‘No Time’, were both of their time - punchy and urgent but ultimately lacking in substance. Animal Games, London’s one and only album (and accompanying single) in 1978 followed suit, its power pop feel lacking the true bite of punk’s pioneers. Lead singer Riff Regan later attempted a solo career, while drummer Jon Moss joined the Edge before making his name in the early 80s with Culture Club.
