Steve Gould had been touring with Merrill's live band Arrows after his band Rare Bird broke up in 1976. When the Arrows broke up in 1978 both singers were looking for new projects. They went into the studio to do a rough demo with bass player Mick Feat, who was playing with Van Morrison  at the time, and drummer Dave Dowle who was playing with the band Whitesnake.
The demo the foursome did was so good that the band were signed by Arista Records subsiduary Acrobat Records in the UK and Island Records in the USA immediately. They went to The Manor recording studio in Oxfordshire England and recorded their first and only album with James Guthrie producing.
Oddly, the band Runner never toured, in spite of their making the American charts.
