Originally formed in the industrial wastelands of Sheffield in 1978. The band released three studio albums and several singles / EPs. Championed by John Peel, they recorded two sessions for the show and featured in the 1982 ‘Festive 50’ at number 9 with the classic ‘Into The Garden’. The band eventually broke up in 1985, posthumously releasing a live album of their final gig in Amsterdam.
Fast-forward to the year 2000 and the release of the film ‘Made In Sheffield’, which documented the explosion of post-punk and electronic music in the city. Made In Sheffield featured interviews with the band and footage from the Leeds Futurama Festival performance of ‘Afterwards’, regarded by many as one of the film’s most memorable and exciting moments. 2006 saw two retrospectives of the band’s work being released simultaneously: the ‘Afterwards’ and ‘Into The Garden’ compilation albums. In 2007 Jarvis Cocker invited the band to reform for the prestigious ‘Meltdown’ festival at London’s Royal Festival Hall.
