Featuring the father and stepson team of Reuben and Laurence Archer, Stampede was a promising NWOBHM band that formed in 1981 and rather quickly signed to a major label (Polydor), releasing two albums and an EP. As heard on the Hurricane Town album, they were decidedly in the more radio-accessible, hard rock side of the NWOBHM. They continued to tour in the early-to-mid eighties but eventually flamed out, with one of the Archer brothers moving on to UFO for a time and the other members involving themselves in other musical activies. In 2009 the core trio of the two Archers and bassist Colin Bond decided to put the band back together, eventually expanding to a quintet and releasing A Sudden Impulse in 2011.
