Ramleh started out as a power electronics group in 1982 by Gary Mundy of Broken Flag records. He added Bob Strudwick and later replaced him with Jerome Clegg. Ramleh recorded some of the earliest, and heaviest examples of power electronics with many releases and live performances, including the classic "Return to Slavery" album. The original phase of the band ended in 1984. In 1987 Ramleh relaunched again, this time as a Gary Mundy solo project, with the release "Hole in the heart" and "Nerve".
