Best remembered because of their 1978 hit “Driver’s Chair,” London-based brand-new influx combo Sniff ‘n’ the Tears emerged in the remnants from the little-known Ashes of Moon, which disbanded in 1974 after failing woefully to stir up very much label interest. The average person members from the music group scattered through the middle-’70s, with frontman Paul Roberts turning his focus on painting; however, following ascendance of the brand new influx, drummer Luigi Salvoni confident Roberts to re-form the group with guitarists Mick Dyche and Loz Netto, bassist Nick South, and keyboardist Keith Miller, and in 1978, the recently christened Sniff ‘n’ the Tears started shopping their demonstration. Chiswick agreed upon the music group and released its debut record, Fickle Center, that summer, using the one “Driver’s Chair” learning to be a main hit within the U.S. The Game’s Up made an appearance in 1980, but didn’t make a lot of a industrial influence; when 1981’s Appreciate Action and the next year’s Trip Blue Divide fulfilled a similar destiny, Sniff ‘n’ the Tears disbanded. Within the wake of “Driver’s Chair” suffering from a commercial-driven revival in 1992, Roberts set up a fresh lineup of Sniff ‘n’ the Tears for the Western european tour and a fresh album, No Harm Done. Roberts continuing beneath the moniker Sniff ‘n’ the Tears for 2001’s Underground, after that he retired the music group for another 10 years, reconvening a fresh lineup for 2011’s Downstream.
