Biography

Formed in 1969, Eruption was a British R&B, disco, and soul band. Originally known as Silent Eruption, the band was comprised of musicians of Caribbean origins. By 1974, the band shortened their name to Eruption and, with the addition of backing vocalist Precious Wilson in ’75, they won an RCA Soul Search contest. They issued their first single, “Let Me Take You Back in Time”, that same year. Original lead singer Lindel Leslie left the band and Precious Wilson took over on lead vocals. Overlooked by their label and in need of money, the band undertook a tour in Germany, where they were discovered by a talent scout for Frank Farian (Boney M/Milli Vanilli). Signed to Hansa Records, the band went on tour with Farian’s latest studio sensations Boney M, serving as opening act and backing band. In 1977, “I Can’t Stand the Rain”, the second single lifted from their self-titled debut album, became an international hit, hitting the Top 20 in the U.S., the Top 10 in Austria, Germany, Ireland, Switzerland, Norway, and the Netherlands. The single reached Number 1 in Australia and Belgium. Their second album, Leave a Light (1979), featured another international hit single with “One Way Ticket”. Precious Wilson left the band to pursue a solo career. Eruption’s next album, Fight Fight Fight (1980), featured lead vocals by Kim Davis, who died the year the album was released. Davis was replaced by Jane Jochen. They released one more studio album, 1983’s Our Way, before calling it a day in 1985.
