The first time most people may have heard of the band would have been around August 1987 when the indie single “When the Hoodoo Comes" started to get played on night-time radio, leading to a full session later that year which really got tongues wagging.
By late 87 the band had become available hot property in London with the majors all forming a disorderly pack of signature chasers. Overnight sensations? Not really. There had been some formative years grimly holding on to principles while music in the UK was being led by some seriously transparent early-mid eighties "artistes".
