Strider are a 3 piece Rock Band that was originally formed in 1989. The reason for the band was easy,  most bands on the circuit were playing all the usual new wave,  modern pop songs that were in the charts at the time. Lots of people were fed up of the same stuff being played, and very much missed the old rock Classics from the 60's and 70's.


At the time, Mark was working at the BBC  on a childrens program called " Bitsa" and had just done a recording of Jimi Hendrix's classic " Crosstown Traffic" to be used in the program, when everybody raved about how great the song was and they wished that there where still bands around that played that kind of stuff, that was the seed!!


After a visit to agent Tony West's office, Mark overheard a converstion with Tony and the manager of  a pub in Warrinton called "Smithy's, and they were discussing how difficult it was trying to find a 3 piece Rock Band. "I can put one together", said Mark ,
" great" said Tony, " the gig is next Thursday"!!! "What, err ok leave it with me", the rest , as they say, is history.


Since then, Strider has had numerous line up's and more drummers than Spinnal Tap! We have always laughed that he band is like a " Well flogged horse that refuses to die ", but while there is still a demand for great Rock music,  we will keep playing it.
