Formed in the united kingdom in 1979 but heavily affected by American pomp rock and roll bands such as for example Trip and Styx, Canis Main comprised Jacqui Bodimead (vocals), Tony Bodimead (guitar), Mick Groves (guitar), John Pepe (keyboards), Simon Cooper (bass) and Gary Smart (drums). The group released their debut recording for JEM Information in 1980. Butterfly Queen mixed strong songwriting from your Bodimead brother-sister group with fluent musicianship. Nevertheless, poor advertising and distribution avoided it from producing the impact it deserved. Bodimead consequently found commercial achievement as an associate of Girlschool.
