Mr. Fowler became interested in recording and began to document the bands original music. Besides a few studio sessions, the bulk of material was home recordings never released. A few of the songs were performed live also by the local band Quadrant. All the members were heavily involved in the live music scene at this time. Bands often performed three to six nights a week in those days without shortage of work or venues.
All members have recorded many works through the years as they began solo projects and formed other bands. The short list of bands include Tom Lockwood Band, The Force, Friends, Highwaze, Advanced Green, Manpower, Appliances, Ground Zero, Nexus, Harvest, Air Tight, Hero, Rebel, The Unit, Quadrant, Rosco, Red herring, Chickoree
