The band was named in 1980 by Jim Buckshon, who had joined a temporary project called Nighshift after he left the band, The Wires, in 1979.  Realizing the potential, the female singer at the time was replaced by Gary Ellison

The name was changed to Army, and the Feldman Agency was brought on to book the band.

Jim Buckshon hired Jim Robinson to replace him after the band was booked for too long in small towns.  Buckshon went on to join The Kidz.  Later, David Steele and Rod Knowlon replaced Ellison and Sherrington.
