It managed to reach number 20 in the UK Independent Chart, but it was with their second single "Sensitive"that first garnered them significant critical attention, giving them a top-20 indie hit. Debut mini-album 'Snowball' was released in 1989 and performed well on the indie charts, prompting the duo to expand and thus were joined by Harvey Williams (Another Sunny Day) on guitar and in 1990 the band grew again to include Annemari Davies on guitar and keyboards and Michael Hiscock on bass, this new line up first performing together on the band's 2nd LP 'Skywriting.

The band split in 1991 after a less than admirable tour to promote their third album 'For Keeps,' after lead singer/guitarist Robert Wratten decided he was leaving, while still touring. « hide
