Flying Squad

Produced in Scotland in the mid-70s, Traveling Squad had been a efficient if unspectacular hard rock and roll group in the gritty, unpretentious vein of Container or Fastway. Composed of Ian Muir (vocals), Monty McMonagle (electric guitar), Alex Calder (electric guitar), George Crossan (bass) and Jim Kelly (drums), they documented a self-titled debut record in 1978 that was made by Francis Rossi of Position Quo. Used agility and imbued with significant melodic existence, it augured well for the group with Muir’s stylish vocals getting particular praise. Nevertheless, it was hardly ever implemented up, and Muir ultimately defected to create Waysted (beneath the pseudonym ‘Fin’).
