This was down to several factors: producer Clive Culbertson's inexperience recording heavy metal bands, the limitations of the recording facilities themselves, the addition of keyboards on some tracks, and (crucially) the decision to use a drum machine rather than a live drummer. This pop-metal demo proved to be too lightweight for the metal labels and too metal for everyone else. As such it was ahead of it's time. It did attract the attention of Terry Hooley who offered to manage the band, but they split up.
A farewell reunion gig one year later was recorded and released on video. Lineup: Jim Douglas (vocals), Peter Manley (ex Archie The Leper, guitar/backing vocals), Noel McAllister (bass), Budgie Diamond (drums). Budgie replaced early on by Mark Lafferty (drums). John Manley (of Archie The Leper) played drums for the 1988 reunion gig. The music for the next White Roxx album entitled "Second Coming" was completed in March 2011. To date there are 12 new tracks recorded and two re-makes of White Roxx classics from the 80S ("Cold Hearted Woman" and "Long Gone in the Night").
The band are now giving fans and budding songwriters a chance to get involved in the project.
