Thanks to The Progressive Aspect for a glowing review of Zorbonauts' 'The Unobserved Beaver'!
Great rock bands get to be via great songs, impactful performance and the sheer weight of being: in a word, ‘pedigree’. It’s particularly appropriate to British 1980s act, Midnight Flyer. Prior to formation in 1980, its members had notched the likes of Stone The Crows, Streetwalkers, Whitesnake, Savoy Brown, Foghat, Hudson Ford, Jim Capaldi and Leo Sayer among many others onto their belts.
Fronted by one of the finest female vocalists the UK has ever produced, Midnight Flyer was made up of vastly-experienced musicians, pooled from the cream of British rock talent in Stone The Crows, Streetwalkers, Whitesnake, Savoy Brown, Foghat, Hudson Ford, Jim Capaldi and Leo Sayer among many others.
