Starjets

Profile:
Punk pop / new wave band
They were formed in Belfast, Northern Ireland in 1976 by guitarist - lead vocalist Terry Sharpe, guitarist Paul Bowen (2), bassist Sean Martin (3) and drummer Liam L'Estrange. They were signed at Epic by Muff Winwood where they released one album in 1979 and a bunch of singles with "War Stories" being their biggest hit (No.51 in the U.K. charts in 1979). They supported Bay City Rollers and Stiff Little Fingers and because of their amiable style they were labelled "the Bay City Rollers of punk". After their album failed to chart, Paul Bowen (2) left the group and they changed their name to Tango Brigade addding guitarist Pat Gribben in their line up. After one single at Epic in 1981, Tango Brigade disbanded due to musical differences and Terry Sharpe with Pat Gribben formed The Adventures in 1983 and Sean Martin (3) joined Jake Burns And The Big Wheel.

Why is "The Adventures" replaced by (Invalid Artist) in the biography?
