ORION picture
Formed in Middlesex in 1983, ORION were a melodic NWOBHM band who showed a lot of promise.

The original line up contained guitarist Ken Tilley and Simon Ward on bass, both of whom jumped ship to join Nottingham based act DEUCE in early 1984.

Undettered, Orion mainstays Mike Ryde and Pete Andrews recruited Alan Risk and Jay Ryde as replacements and set about recording their lone release.

The "Insane In Another World" 7" single was released by Lost Moment Records later in 1984.
