Zak Starkey's work with:
Laurence Archer

""|  summary  |  releases  |  live  |

I do not have any information about how or why this session came about, but Zak Starkey is the drummer on this Laurence Archer solo LP [Possibly due to the Herne Place Studios connection, or that producer Martin Adams may actually be former Startling Studio engineer Martin Adam, co-producer of Entwistle's The Rock]. The Japanese only release falls into guitarist Archer's time line sometime AFTER the bands Stampede (1981-83), Magnum (for seconds in early 80's), and Grand Slam (with Phil Lynott 1983-84) and BEFORE the bands LA Secret (1986), and UFO (1990-92). Keyboardist Mark Stanway also hails from Magnum (1980-1983) and Grand Slam (1983-84), and in 1985 he returned to Magnum where he stayed until the band ended in 1995. Bassist Greg Leidaman went on to play in Archer's band LA Secrets in 1986.
