History

Not unexpectedly this Leamington Spa band was a glam metal outfit. The band was formed by several British metal scene veterans and achieved some publicity in the UK press before and after the album. The crossover act had a single names Barricades b/w Storm Break Loose and If It Don't Make Yer Ears Bleed. The band also appeared on a compilation LP.
Paul Quigley could be seen starring as the guy who gets knocked around in the lead role in Girlschool's Play Dirty video. He went on to become a journalist. Holder moved to playing session bass for different bands and relocated to the USA later on. A later unrelated band by the same name performed AC/DC covers.
A reformed line-up of the band got together in 2004 and began rehearsing for an album called Rebellion and building a studio. The line-up was Paul Quigley, Pooch, Spiv and Jon Archer.
