Streetwalkers - Downtown Flyers 1975





Genre :  Blues rock, hard rock, Pop/Rock
Charlie Whitney and Roger Chapman formed Streetwalkers late in 1973. This new band included vocalist and guitarist Bobby Tench from The Jeff Beck Group and Hummingbird and future Iron Maiden drummer, Nicko McBrain. Streetwalkers was a polished AOR band with more elements of white soul than Family. They signed to the Vertigo label as Chapman Whitney Streetwalkers recording an album simply entitled Streetwalkers, released on the Reprise label in 1974, with a line up including other members of Family and King Crimson. Chapman and Whitney morphed their band into the "Streetwalkers" which comprised five members including Bobby Tench, drummer Nicko McBrain,

who later moved onto play with Iron Maiden and bassist Jon Plotel. Tench, McBain and Plotel appeared on Rockpalast in 1975,[3] alongside Roger Chapman and Charley Whitney, billed as "The Whitney Chapman Streetwalkers" just before the band name was shortened. Their next album was entitled Downtown flyers which was released in USA during 1975. The groove heavy album Red Card[4] was released in the UK during 1976 and remains a much respected album.[5] Vicious but fair was also released by Vertigo in the same year and a final album Live Streetwalkers in 1977 followed, purely to fulfill contractual obligations.[6] Streetwalkers became highly respected by music fans and the music press. The band broke up in 1977, ending eleven years of the Whitney-Chapman musical partnership.(From wikipedia)
