Artist Biography

This UK group was originally formed in 1980 and featured John Adams (vocals/drums), Rick Lane (keyboards) and John Reed (bass). They signed to Chrysalis and gained a strong live following, but poor record sales precipitated their break-up. In 1984, they re-emerged on EMI Records where Adams, the sole surviving original member, teamed up with Morris Michael (vocals/guitar) and several session musicians. This time a single ‘Living In A World’ made a minor impression on the UK charts, helped by a support slot on the UK tour of Hall And Oates. However, they failed to capitalize on their exposure and were left without a recording contract.
