The project to research and evaluate all the 'forgotten' nwobhm bands continues with Persian Risk. (If you already know this band, feel free to skip reading this week, but I promise you it'll be shorter than last week.)
This one chosen slightly less randomly than last week, I remembered seeing the name somewhere before specifically with the letters "ex-" in front of it and brackets around it, but couldn't remember who I'd seen that in relation to. A quick glance at the band's original line-up immediately throws up two candidates who I'm sure I've read about before.
Vocals: John Deverill (would go on to Tygers of Pan Tang)
Guitars: Phil Campbell (would go on to Motorhead)
Guitars: Dave Bell
Bass: Nick Hughes (would go on to Idol Rich)
