Profile Originally the band formed in 1980 by songwriter,keyboardist and producer Tom Slack, drummer Larry Dent, frontman Grady Smith, and executive producer,manager of the band Michael McNulty. In 1981 guitarist Mark Moulin and bassist Doug Lunn joined the band and in 1982 the band’s first work a four tracks EP released with good sales. With the addition of another guitarist Steve Elowe the band started working on a ten track album but due to various circumstances  the album never released and the they split-up.

This rare 14 track album was released on the now defunct AOR-FM label of the UK in 2008 and is numbered “532”. The entire series from AOR-FM have become classic and hard to find.  What you get is Pompy AOR/Melodic Rock that can easily be put next to bands like Shelter, Preview, Sugarcreek, Loverboy, Airrace, Le Roux, Champion, Avion, Dakota, Franke and the Knockouts, so it’s basically breathing out the classic early 80s North American AOR/Radiorocksound.
