Strife formed in 1971 and were gigging regularly by the end of that year. In February 1972, they recorded a live album at Wall City Club at Quaintways, Chester. It was never released. When an album finally emerged in 1975, it contained the most popular numbers from their stage act. They went on to record a second album Back To Thunder in 1978, featuring Don Airey on keyboards.
