Links to Peel
Paul Gambaccini played a track from their self titled album in 1980, whilst covering for Peel, when he was ill. It is very unlikely that Peel himself would have played this group on his shows, as available playlists from 1980 suggest he never played any of their tracks. It may have been a favourite of Paul Gambaccini.
