Among the initial separate, do-it-yourself pop rings of the brand new influx era, the Eager Bicycles hinged around vocalist Danny Wigley, the just member to survive an ever-fluctuating line-up. At one stage he was aided and abetted by Roger Stephens (bass), Dan Electro (electric guitar), Dave Papworth (drums) and Nick Stephens (keyboards), although Jeff Titley also offered period behind the drumkit. In 1977 ‘Smokescreen’/‘Handlebars’ premiered, featuring both monitors in mono on both edges, over the music group’s very own label Fill up. This established the pattern for any following Desperate Bicycles item. After many singles – ‘The Moderate Was Tedium’, the brand new Cross New Combination EP, ‘Occupied Place’ (all 1978) and ‘Grief IS QUITE Personal’ (1979) – the group released a well-regarded record, Remorse Code, and eventually disbanded.
