It all started back in 1981 when Stewartie Adams joined his first Pro band, London based rockers Tytan... TYTAN : Original line up : 1981 : Kal Swann (vocals), Steve Gibbs (guitar), Stewartie Adams (guitar), Kevin Riddles (bass), Dave Dufort (Hermien Jerian-Dufort) (drums)... Ex-ANGEL WITCH men Dave Dufort and Kevin Riddles formed London based Heavy Metal outfit TYTAN in September 1981. 
The original incarnation of the band comprised of Dufort, Riddles, vocalist Kal Swann and guitarists Steve Gibbs and Stewartie Adams. Dufort had, previous to ANGEL WITCH, amassed quite a history in the Rock world with bands stretching back into the early 60's including THE VOICE, THE SCENERY, MIKE OLDFIELD and KEVIN AYERS. 
The drummer was also involved in NW0BHMers the E.F. BAND. 
Despite a fanfare of press Adams left within months and later turned up fronting LYIN' RAMPANT. 
He was superseded by ex-A II Z man Gary Owens.
TYTAN received substantial major record company interest, but opted to sign with indie Kamaflage Records and laid down plans to release the 'Blind Men And Fools' single during 1982 in advance of a proposed album. 
Unfortunately, despite the album being recorded albeit without Stewartie Adams or Gary Owens who also quit the group in 1982, Kamaflage Records went under before it could be released. 
It would not be before 1985 when the album, aptly titled 'Rough Justice', finally emerged through the Metal Masters label...

Glasgow born guitarist and vocalist Stewartie Adams came back home to Scotland and teamed up with ex HEAVY PETTIN guitarist Eddie Trainer, drummer Tam Creamer (Tam Cramer) and Edinburgh born bass player Georgie Pringle, to form LYIN' RAMPANT, they later added keyboard player Paul Stephens also from Edinburgh, The band eventually split in 1991 due to the unfortunate demise of Prism records and a number of line up changes...
