Chariot In-depth Biography

One of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal}'s somewhat late, mid-'80s arrivals (along with Grim Reaper}, Cloven Hoof}, and others), East London's Chariot} comprised vocalist/guitarist Pete Franklin}, lead guitarist Scott Biaggi}, bassist John Smith}, and drummer Jeff Braithwaite}. Originally formed as a five-piece, in 1981, the group (then still featuring French transplant Olivier le Franc} on drums) was reduced to a foursome when their singer quit just minutes before they were due on-stage, forcing Franklin} to move center stage. Thus they remained, and although Chariot} soon became regulars in on the London club circuit, neither a burgeoning local following nor their serviceable first demos were enticing enough to draw record company attention. In fact, so quickly had the N.W.O.B.H.M.} fallen out of favor (despite having its own fair share of success stories in Iron Maiden}, Saxon}, and Def Leppard}), that it wound up taking the supportive staff at local record store Shades to start a label simply for the purpose of releasing the group's 1984 debut, The Warrior}. This, along with the following year's All Alone Again} EP, contained professional, polished, but rather unoriginal N.W.O.B.H.M.}, along the same stylistic lines as contemporaries Elixir} and Tysondog}. And even though Chariot} remained a popular club draw in the next few years (even opening for Venom} on select U.K. dates), 1986's Burning Ambition} met with similar indifference because it was simply not inventive enough to make an impression this late in the game. Not even a positive reception at the 1987 Reading Festival} and a free promotional EP given away by Metal Hammer} magazine could save the band from a speedy and unheralded demise by 1988. A brief reunion took place around 1991, but when nobody seemed to even notice, Chariot}'s musicians once again moved on to other projects. ~ Eduardo Rivadavia, All Music Guide
