Featuring a core of three multi-instrumentalists, Peter Godwin, Duncan Browne and Sean Lyons whose debut ('Metro') was released in 1976 on the Transatlantic label.

"Criminal World" the first single from the debut, was later covered by David Bowie, although the original remains the definitive version. "Flame" and its "Overture" are highlight tracks that would be appreciated across many genres of listeners. After recording a follow-up (New Love) and the untimely death of Duncan Browne (who leaves behind his own extensive discography) the voice of the band, Peter Godwin went on to record some disco-oriented material with some mainland European success. « hide
