Jimmy The Hoover was made up of Derek on vocals with Simon on keyboards and vocals, Maddog on drums with Flinto on bass and Mark on guitar.

They were a 'One hit wonder' after being dropped by their label, when the follow up single failed to achieve the same success as 'Tantalise'.

The sound the group achieved on the song was later imitated by the likes of 'Tears For Fears'.

The name 'Jimmy The Hoover' was the brainwave of 'Malcolm McLaren'
