The original band also included Paul Erikson (bass) and Simon Monroe (drums). Erikson and Monroe had left by 1985, and the group continued as a duo augmented by guest musicians. Though the band split in 1998, they reformed briefly for a world tour in 2005. In winter 2011, they reunited once again to record a new album, and have continued sporadic activity since.
