From South London, The Direct Hits were formed in 1980 from the ashes of previous incarnation 'The Exits (3)'. Original drummer was Steve Warburton, only live shows a few demos were made with this line-up.
After meeting Dan Treacy in 1981, band started recording for the Whaam! record label. After releasing a single and album, the band's future releases were all on their own imprints, apart from Speed Over Berlin and later re-issues.
Despite constant gigging in Britain and Europe and several excellent releases, the band never broke into the mainstream and folded in 1987, reforming for a one-off performance in Autumn 1988.
