Hi, love the site, and enjoyed going through it, however there is a band missing who were quite prominent in Birmingham in the late 70’s early 80’s and that was a band called Strider. They were the resident band at the Mercat Cross every Saturday night throughout 78,79, and 80. ¬†Among their songs were “Cover Up” which they were hoping to release as a single. I’m sorry I don’t have much more information, but I seem to remember they were top class rock band and their encore (if I remember rightly) was Johnny B Goode. They were there the same time as Orphan, who were the resident band on a Weds I think and Special Clinic (or Clinic) who were the Thursday one. ¬†Another person (under Mercat Cross comments) mentions Strider, and remember them.

John Collins
