Their first album Playing with a Different Sex is considered a post-punk classic with strong, sarcastic songs like “It’s Obvious” and “We’re So Cool” taking a dry look at gender relations. Other songs, such as “Armagh” with its refrain,”we don’t torture” took a pro-republican look at the then ongoing “Troubles” in Northern Ireland, which caused some controversy at the time.
The band’s second album, Sense and Sensuality, showed an even greater influence of jazz, soul, funk and disco on the band’s sound, but was less well received. The band broke up in 1983 just before they were about to go into the studio to record an album with producer Steve Lillywhite. Woods formed an all woman band called the Darlings in the late ’80s, but then left the music industry. She now works as a lawyer. Guitarist, Paul Foad remains an active musician, playing with Andy Hamilton and the Blue Notes, a Jamaican Jazz band and teaching guitar in and around Birmingham. He has also published a guitar technique book, co-written with Stuart Ritchie, titled The Caged Guitarist (2000). Bass player Jane Munro works as an alternative therapist (aromatherapy, reflexology and indian head massage) in Birmingham. Pete Hammond also remains an active musician and teaches percussion in Birmingham.
The band performed in 1980 for the cult classic concert film Urgh! A Music War.
