Profile One more short-lived band from Fareham, Hampshire acted in the early 80s with a sound refer to NWOBHM and pure hard rock that worth to pick it up. Formed by Pat Shayler and John Barr after their departure from a college band called Jody. Originally called Chinastreet and sounding quite glam-influenced, but soon went for a harder approach. The band release the single “Short And Sweet / How Many Times” and a full live album “Pay it to the Death” containing a show played in May 1981. They play the standard formula of catchy, up-beat heavy metal that scores of other bands did in the early 80s.
