Inquiries and discussions about new wave artists and what happened to them.

does anyone here know something about this band?
They were from Surrey (UK) and existed at least from 1979-83.

Bandmembers were: solo bass guitar - Glenn (Martin) Howard, bass guitar - Peter Stevenson, rhythm guitar - Dave Fancourt, drums - John Bell, vocals - Rob Ross, keyboards - Adrian York

The Russians Are Coming/New Moon Falling (Voyage 1979)
Race To Nowhere/Leisure Crime (Grand Prix 1980)
Clockwork Generation/Melody In The Key Of Time (Grand Prix 1981)
1984/Mushroom Music (Grand Prix 1983)

I´m searching for information about them since 6 years and until now I found out that Glenn Howard died in 1999 and Adrian York went on to play with the Simon Townshend Band, Roman Holliday and On The Air.

That´s all...
I hope to get in contact with the band (or just get more information in this way) to publish a website and to eventually reissue their records on a friend´s label.

Can you help me?
