One-album nine-piece funk band

A group of young talented musicians that at the time in 1973-75 was only between age 16 and 20. The band started as a combo, but after several changes they recruited more members, most notably a horn-section. They built themself up as a funk/rock band named [b]Qualified Funk[/b]. But after [a=John Jenkins] and [a=Modeste Clarke] took over the managment, the name was changed to [b]Exit 9[/b]. After some hard work they managed to get an album deal with [l=Brunswick] and they recorded "Straight Up" in 1975.
