This UK hard rock quartet was formed in 1975 by Ross Stagg (vocals, guitar), Noel Scott (keyboards), Joe Read (bass) and Mick Underwood (drums; ex-Quatermass), and had been found by EMI Information the following season. Drawing their motivation from Deep Crimson, Thin Lizzy and Uriah Heep, they released four albums more than a five-year period. These fulfilled with not a lot of achievement, except in Japan, where they taken care of a cult pursuing. Strapps under no circumstances graduated from support work status in European countries, which was a good summation of the accurate potential. The music group disintegrated in 1979, when Underwood became a member of Gillan.
