The band formed in 1984, although various members had been in local Teesside (North-east U.K) bands since the late 70s. The most notable of these bands was Basczax. They signed to CBS in house label Portrait Records in 1985 and were tipped for big things. The band released five singles: 'Swallow Glass', 'My Cleopatra', 'Masuka Dan', 'Girl On A Train' and 'A Different Kind Of Love.' They also released two albums: 'Watching The Film' (1986) and 'Charmed Life' (1987).
