Sadly, they didn’t get the full recognition in the States that they did on their home turf of the UK at the time. Sometimes change happens slowly around here.
In any event, here is a sample of what they were up to during those heady days of 1983, in case you missed them the first time around or wanted to be reminded that changing direction every now and then is a healthy thing.
Play loud – it’s Halloween, fer’ chrissake.
