Celebrating Birmingham's Popular Music History
Great band with impressive stage show of lights and pyrotechnics including exploding polystyrene head and firework rocket attached to headstock of Stu Clarkes flying v. Great range of tunes with single release in 1980 much sort after and very collectable now plus Set Me Free LP on Heavy Metal Records Label under the name of FORCE in mid 80’s. Garry Chapman (lead guitar) works at PMT Music shop and Stu can be seen strutting his stuff in Ian the Goat sings Black sabbath comedy tribute band as Tony Iommi.
Great band – and reforming for a one off gig on 23/7/2010 in memory of guitarist Stu Clarke who died last year. Make sure you are there. I always enjoyed my Sunday nights at the Railway on Curzon St. Happy memories.
I remember seeing Cryer at a Birmingham University Rock Soc event in 1982! Excellent stuff. For an encore they did a great medley of Gary Glitter songs – you’d probably not want to do that these days…. 🙂 Good memories.
Ha ha, I helped put on that gig. It wasn’t called Rock Soc by the way, it was Mean Machine or Mayhem Merchants depending on how silly we were feeling on a given day.
