Dealer was just another 80's British wannabe who signed to Ebony Records during the tail end of the NWOBHM scene, recording a single album in 1986 and dissolving soon afterward, citing dissatisfaction with Ebony. Several of the guys later resurfaced in the melodic rock band Vandamne, where they achieved a bit more success than here.
