    Info (from Facebook)
    The Mk I line-up Graeme Phillips Drums, Adrian Cockcroft Bass, Ken Eltringham on guitar, Jon Willoughby on guitar and vocals. Adrian graduated university and got a job and moved to Cambridge in Oct 1982, Then he moved to the USA in 1993. The Mk I line up did not record any material before Adrian Cockcroft left to further his career in the USA as a renowned computer software guru at Sun Systems.

    The MK11 line up added Adrian Cain on bass and recorded a 2 track demo recorded at Livingstone Studios, in North London in October 1982, which was reviewed in the then legendary Metal Forces fanzine, and was played regularly in the US on collage radio. The 2 track demo regularly appeared in the Melody Maker HM Charts. This demo got the recognition of Mausoleum records in Germany and the offer of distribution of their material in Europe. Jon Willoughby left to form a band called Rio with Steve Rodford. Recording 2 albums for Music for nations, before splitting up. Jon's latest project is a band called Starseedz.

    The Mark 111 line up consisted of the nucleus of Phillips and Eltringham were joined by John Pritchard (Debarra) Vocals, Simon Blenkin, Guitars, and Kevin Kershaw. Gigged and recorded. The Mk III line up produced numerous demos non fit for public consumption, and ended up in the red filing cabinet. (The bin,) and after a short while changed vocalist and Gary Henderson (ex local heroes ESP) joined the fold, and after 2 days rehearsal played two shows in 2 days at the Woolpack in Herford, and then the following day their biggest show to date at British Aerospace in front of 500+ people.

    The Mk IV line-up of Eltringham, Blenkin, Henderson, Kershaw and Phillips, worked tirelessly around the London circuit, they recorded 2 more demo tapes at the Thatched Barn studio in Bedford, both in 1984, Before going their own separate ways.

    The rest of the band continued on as Krysis.

    Graeme Phillips then went on to form Schutt with Nicci Schutt - Vocals, Mark White,- lead Guitar, Ralph Church - Lead Guitar, and Dave Warminger - Bass Recording 2 demo tapes, the first a 4 song session recorded at Steve Rodford's studio, got the attention of a Music for Nations scout who paid for an 8 song demo recorded in a 24track studio in North London. The Band folded and Mark went on to play bass with North London prog rock band Elixir.
