This UK heavy rock band was an offshoot of Back Street Crawler, the band that had featured the late and legendary Paul Kossoff. Crawler comprised Terry Wilson Slesser (vocals), Geoff Whitehorn (guitar), John Rabbit Bundrick (keyboards), Terry Wilson (bass) and Tony Braunagel (drums). They released two blues rock albums during the late 70s, which were ignored amid the punk rock explosion of the day (though the debut albums Stone Cold Sober was a particularly resonant piece). The group disbanded in 1978, with Whitehorn going back to session work and Slesser reappearing in Charlie.
