A month or two later, Duhig, Havard and Price travelled to Persia later to become Iran and worked in various nightclubs for three months, only to return to England practically destitute after a series of management mishaps.
Before this, however, Duhig had introduced Havard to Jon Field, suggesting that he make a vocal contribution to Duhig and Field's own musical project. When Havard and Duhig returned from Persia, they and Field set about recording a series of demos that laid the foundation for the initial Jade Warrior albums.
In the words of David Duhig, Tony's brother and later a band member , "Tony met Glyn Havard and Allan Price,  and they formed a band, which nobody really mentions because they went off to Persia to do some sort of money gig. I suppose the most notable thing about that is that Tony caught some sort of disease he called 'Persian Leg,' Phlebitis! That was around the end of ' Working along those lines, we sat down in Jon's living room and drew up two lists, one comprising words we identified with the quieter, meditative side of the band, and the other expressing the heavier, more menacing aspect.
The hard list featured a more macho selection such as 'Spear' and, of course, 'Warrior'. Jon's first wife, Jenny, had made the suggestion that we might select our name from a choice of verbs rather than nouns, but after some deliberation, we ditched this idea as being too outre.
In the end we decided on 'Jade', from the soft list, and 'Warrior' from the hard one. I guess had it gone differently, we might just as easily have been called something like 'Lotus Spear'. Later a Red Hot Records press release stated that, "Jade Warrior was a Japanese term for a samurai warrior who was also a poet and scholar", but Havard expressed doubts as for the literal truth of this interpretation.

European Movies.This was the first Jade Warrior album I ever heard on the radio, and it took me 15 years to track down a copy (finally found it in a $2 bin at a record show). Underrated and criminally rare It's worth seeking out. The crossing point between their prog/jazz/fusion and their later new-age style. Stunning dynamics.
