Tour de Force original line-up

Pictured left is the original line-up of Tour de Force, featuring Nods and Gareth, with Mike Bonner on Bass and Phil Anderson on drums.  Phil was replaced briefly by Mop Youngson

Mike Bonner then left the band, to be replaced by Ian Benzie who not only played bass, but took over as lead singer.  

Until this point Gareth and Nods had performed the lead vocals.  

Colin Chapman joined the band shortly afterwards on drums

This line-up went on to record The Promise's first album, and stayed together until Deanne got married and moved to the States with her American husband.

Colin has since moved to Glasgow.
