Formed in 1985, developed out of Neill Solomon’s band Bazar with Neill Solomon (guitar, vocals), Greg Georgiades (bass), George Spencer (percussion) and George Voros (drums).
Later versions of the band included Chris Bekker (bass), Stuart Woods (keyboards), George Spencer (drums), Dan Chiorboli (percussion), Thathi Pule (bass), Karriem Daries (drums) and Anthony Stevens (guitar).
The Passengers released the singles “Hold on” in 1987, “Got to get Away” in 1988 and “Honeytown” and “What?” in 1989.
All four were included on their only album Rule Of The Swallow released in 1989.
The band broke up in the early 1990s and Neil Solomon continued with studio, theatre, film and solo work.
