After several singles (including Hey You on the Angevin Black & Black label), they signed their first album with Semetery, a subsidiary of Fnac Music. Recorded in January 1992 by Donnell Cameron (American sound engineer, having worked with Bad Religion, Rancid, Blink 182, etc.) it contains a cover of XTC's Making Plans for Nigel.
