In 1966, five Toronto teenagers formed Nucleus, later the Lords of London. Greg Fitzpatrick (bass, vocals), Bob Horne (organ), Hughie Leggat (guitar), John Richardson (guitar, vocals) and Danny Taylor (drums) recorded several singles before changing the group's name to A Foot in Coldwater in 1971 (the same year Fitzpatrick left for a solo career). Before the band split up in 1977, four albums were recorded: a self-titled 1972 debut, The Second Foot in Coldwater (1973), All Around Us (1974) and Breaking Through (1977). Leggat then formed Thunder Road and later Private Eyes, also working with his brother, Gordon, on 1982's Illuminations. Two best-ofs, Footprints 1 and Footprints 2, were released in 1983, and the band re-formed in 1988 for a concert tour.
