The Exploreres were Phil Manzanera and Andy Mackay from Roxy Music along with James Wraith.
This really could of been a Roxy Music album and the record company spent a lot of time promoting this band.I went to see them live in Nottingham and they were fantastic live,it was great to see them in a small venue.I love Andy´s sax playing.
There was four singles from the album,Falling For Nightlife,Venus De Milo, Lorelei and Two Worlds Apart.If theses had been by Roxy i´m sure they would of been hits.

    Wow. This is a great find. Ordinarily, I won’t chance a whole album by an unknown artist but the Roxy connection was too good to resist. And yet, not an exact replica. The sound has a little bit more bite than Avalon-era RM. I was a bit worried about the absence of Ferry, but Wraith is up to the challenge. A track I didn’t really care for was the ABC knock-off Two Worlds Apart. But the rest was very tasty indeed!
