They were featured on the NME’s 1986 compilation C86 with one of their slower songs, “It’s Up To You”. Also in that year, they signed to the Chrysalis Records off-shoot Blue Guitar for a further single, ‘I Don’t Wanna Be Friends With You’ and their first and only LP album, The Shop Assistants. This spent one week at number 100 in the UK album charts, which gives the band the distinction of being the (joint) least successful act ever to hit the national charts. The album was re-released on CD in 2001, although it is now hard to find.
The band split early in 1987, when Alex joined The Motorcycle Boy. After a two-year hiatus, the band reformed (without Alex) in 1989 with Sarah Kneale now on vocals and Laura MacPhail on bass and the addition of Margarita Vasquez-Ponte on drums, releasing a brace of singles in 1990 before splitting again, Keegan joining The Pastels.
