In 1986, they scored a big hit with their single “Calling All the Heroes” which reached number 6 in the UK charts. After numerous TV and Radio appearances including Top Of the Pops, The Old Grey Whistle Test and The Tube, their debut Top 40 album “The Big Lad In The Windmill” was released and received great critical and commercial acclaim.
After much touring and writing, by 1988 the band had written and recorded their second studio album “Once Around the World”. Containing some great radio songs, this album also featured epics like “Old Man and the Angel” and the title track “Once Around the World” , both in excess of ten minutes long and hailed by the press as “Musical Masterpieces".
Again the band toured extensively around the world, building a strong and loyal fan base and a reputation as one of the best live acts on the circuit, supporting bigger acts like Marillion, Fleetwood Mac and Robert Plant from Led Zeppelin.
The band are back with their fourth studio album and a new line-up. They are touring just as often as they did in the eighties."The Tall Ships" was released in 2008 and contains the same mix of great songs and musicality that cemented their place in British Rock History.
