They were signed to Propeller Records in Auckland and also recorded one unreleased album , which has been mixed and is due for release in late 1980. Town went to Fetus Productions, Pinker to Dead Can Dance and Van Bergen to Band of Holy Joy.

4) The Features formed as middle-schoolers in Sparta, Tennessee, a small Southern town that boasts bluegrass picker Lester Flatt as its claim to fame. The group of classic rock-loving adolescents had big ideas while sitting in the school cafeteria, but they hadn’t acquired instruments yet. Due to the lack of a proper drum set, the Features first generation percussion section was beat box, and no one was eager to play bass. Bassist Roger Dabbs remembers the band’s sales tactics.
