The band toured throughout the late 70’s in to the early 80’s whereas a five piece (minus keyboardist Alan Goldswain) they recorded their second album “Operation Stingray” with all songs once again written by the band. Following this a change in lineup took place where bassist Eddie Boyle was replaced by Gerald “Jiggs’ Downing and drummer Shaun Wright by Wally Cullis. The group eventually split up in 1982 where Dennis East returned to his solo career as solo artist, songwriter and producer with David Gresham Records.
