After early interest from John Peel and a release on Fierce Panda Records 75 compilation 'From Greer to Eternity' named 'I feel', Solar Race in 1995 released 'Not Here' single on Silvertone Records followed by a four track 'Solar Race EP'. then "The Peel Sessions Bar 2" put together from two of their Peel Sessions at Maida vale. 'Resilient Little Muscle' was released in 1996 recorded with John Fryer. The Album 'Homespun' was released in 1997, recorded at Abbey Road with Steve Albini, 'Lee Speaks' being their released track. Considering Solar Races obscurity and musical intent, independent of the Manchester music scene at the time they achieved surprising success and support from discerning music listeners and notable figures around. If you ever saw them live you were unlikely to forget them. A powerful trio with vocals that would wake the coldest of souls.
