Undaunted by the collapse of Ring O'Records and lack of chart success, Johnny Warman continued to work on his own sound and formed the group 3 Minutes, with Jeff Rich on Drums and Paul Martinez on Bass. Johnny states that the band's name came to him in a dream where he was told "you shall be called Three Minutes" although now Johnny jokes that the band lasted about as long. 3 Minutes toured supporting The Vapors for 24 dates and XTC for 6 dates. The group disbanded after releasing this single in 1980 on Rocket Records, XPRESS 40 "Automatic Kids"/"Future Fun" which to date was Johnny's most widespread release seeing releases in Great Britain, France, West Germany, The Netherlands and Portugal. Although 3 Minutes has disbanded after only one single the door was open at Rocket for more solo releases in 1981.
