Racing Cars - The Albums 1976-1978 (@320)

 


Racing Cars - The Albums 1976-1978

Artist Biography By AllMusic.

Formed in the Rhondda Valley, South Wales in 1975, Racing Cars comprised Graham Headley Williams (guitar), Gareth ‘Monty’ Mortimer (vocals/guitar), Ray ‘Alice’ Ennis (guitar), David Land (bass) and Robert Wilding (drums). Released by Chrysalis Records, their albums also included bit-parts for session pianist Geraint Watkins, American saxophonist Jerry Jumonville, the Bowles Brothers Band (on vocal harmonies). Reaching number 39 in the UK album list, the band’s 1977 debut Downtown Tonight also produced an unexpected UK Top 20 entry with the memorable ballad ‘They Shoot Horses Don’t They?’, named after the movie. No more hits were forthcoming but the band was sufficiently established in the colleges to issue two further albums.

Mortimer worked as a session singer before re-forming Racing Cars in the late 80s. The revived unit toured Europe for several years and completed a new album, Bolt From The Blue, in 2000.
