The group was quite successful in England and Europe. The group had only a world tour, but several tours in Europe.
Before the Merge
Prior to the merger between the two bands, the Stars already existed, and had Syd Barrett, Jack Monck and John Adler (Twink). They had already recorded an album without much success, called Psychedelic Circus.
Zee was a project of Richard Wright and Dave Harris. The album was to be recorded in 1984.
In 1984, Syd Barrett and Richard Wright met in a bar in Cambridge where they discussed some ideas, until Wright had the idea to merge your project with the Stars (Barrett supergroup). The idea was accepted as far by Harris, as far by the members of the Stars.
