New wave pop from (1981-2) Christchurch 4 piece. The band feature heart throb Anton Jenner – Vocals (future Wastrels), Chris Tindall – Bass, Paul Lonsdale – Guitar and Guy Norris – Drums. The band played various shows including the influential series of 3ZM sponsored Town Hall concerts. High fashion content.

They released one self released single – ‘Home Again’/’Mother Suburbia’ and eventually split, Jenner going on to front The Wastrels, confusingly beloved band of the Dance Exponents, who didn’t really seem to be quite as good as they were made out to be.
