The band signed to Jive Records and released 5 studio albums spanning 1982 to 1995. The band enjoyed success around the World but America was a particularly fruitful continent for them.
The band hit the upper reaches of the U.S. Hot 100, U.S. Mainstream Rock and U.S Dance charts with ‘I Ran (So Far Away)’ and ‘Wishing (If I Had A Photograph Of You). There remains a lasting interest in the band and their musical legacy.
