Line up: David Fenton Guitar, Vocals; Ed Bazalgette Guitar; Steve Smith Bass, Vocals; Howard Smith Drums.

Relatively short-lived (1979 to 1981) new-wave rock band from Guildford, UK, formed around Dave Fenton. Managed by Bruce Foxton of The Jam and Paul Weller's father, John Weller, they enjoyed worldwide success with their second single "Turning Japanese." After 2 albums, tours of the US, UK and Australia, subsequent disenchantment with the insincerity of the record industry and a lukewarm reception to their second album, the band dissolved.
