In 1978 Gilbert set out on a 20 date tour of Ireland and the U.K.  Backing him was a four piece band called Wilder.  At the time
Wilder had been together for a year playing clubs and colleges and supporting various major groups.  The band consisted of Bill Cuthbert on guitars and percussion, Richard Houghton on bass guitar, Neil Carter on guitar, keyboards and woodwind and finally Stuart Heeley on drums.  Two backing singers were also recruited. Two sisters in fact, Doreen and Irene Chanter.  So that was the line up.  The tour started in Belfast and ended in Slough.  Along the way they also recorded a BBC television special called Sight & Sound which was recorded on the 28th January and broadcast on 11 Feb 1978 and featured 9 songs.
