In this embryonic state, and as 'Byford played bass the band rolled out to perform new shows with the rather unusual configuration as a 2 bass, 2 guitar Drum combo. Ever the innovators of unique style it wasn't long before they signed a record dealwith the rather odd Dancelabel Carrere Records. Pretty soon after, with a tour of the USA pending, they changed their name and SAXON was born.
And now we see Graham Oliver, Steve (Dobby) Dawson, Nigel Durham (3 SAXON artists) with Haydn Conway and John Ward powered up to release their heaviest album to date, set to melt the mind with a metal force akin to nuclear fusion as they prepare for the release of their NEW album titled MOTORBIKER.
... this album delivers more power than a Vulcan Mind Meld - Wurtigern (King of the Saxons)

They had already composed the music earlier in South Yorkshire. The rehearsal room belonged to Steve Dawson. It was handy for the band that Dobby had a rather large building so that the gurus could rehearse in private.
It's rumored that the building is suitable for handling a rather big explosion of sound... somewhat akin to a volcano losing the top of its head on a busy day. Everyone soon started to get involved, voluntarily... the atmosphere was calling the shots and even the guys at the studio, who were somehow involved with THE LOST PROPHETS band, offered their expert influence donating vast quantities of regular professional input.
The mixing console and sound equipment was purchased from GARY BARLOW'S studio. It comes as no surprise then to mention Graham's comments in the few choice words he made whilst introducing the setup to the band. In a somewhat quiet but firm gesture nodding his head in approval he agreed... It's top notch gear.
ODS started by laying down the initial backing tracks of drums and bass.
During these early stages the schedule was hectic. Graham Oliver was all booked up with guitar sessions stateside but managed to roll off a few sections with his son Paul on drums. Whilst regularly gigging around the live circuit, the other band members spent alternative weekends in the Welsh studio. On his return from USA, Graham soon appeared ready to tie in the rhythm section with the capable addition of singer John Ward, now set and ready to hone the vocals for a first analysis of the albums primordial structure.
