The tape, if not the press release,
was more successful than expected. Most notably, it resulted in the
group being offered a session on the influential John Peel Show on
Britain's Radio One.
Ironically, this occurred despite
the group deciding not to send a copy to the Peel Show on account of
the hundreds of such tapes the DJ was receiving every week. Unknown to
the others, bass player Bob did send a tape and the offer of a session
followed almost immediately.
The tape also got reviewed in the
weekly music paper Sounds: 'Hemel Hempstead four-piece with a sense of
humour, semi-deadpan vocals and a pleasant poppy feel. Includes the
number 'Angela Rippon Doesn't Lie' so they must be alright.' -- Garry
Bushell, 14 July, 1979.
Despite such sudden hysteria, the
band found time to be photographed in a field.
