This Canadian hard rock quartet was formed in 1977 by Richard Whittie (vocals), Robert Sprenger (guitar), Neil Light (bass) and Gregg Hinz (drums). Inspired by Triumph, Hurry and Styx, their exclusive record was seen as a Sprenger’s inventive electric guitar function and Whittie’s exclusive vocals. Hinz quit to become listed on Helix soon after the recording’s launch, with ex-Lone Celebrity drummer Dixie Lee moving in as alternative. The band split before any more recordings were produced.
