This band played a sort of soul/funk/jazz type pop. The B-side of their second 45 was a superb keyboard piece that shows Max Middleton's credentials as a quality keyboard player. 

Max Middleton and Bob Tench had both previously been in Jeff Beck's backing band and Max Middleton was also in the brief incarnation of Beck, Bogert and Appice. Middleton and Ahwai later teamed up again for a 1979 album.
