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?
