Claim to fame:
The proto-cyberpunkish fad band of the mid 80s who shocked and appalled music afficiandos and critics by selling ad space on their record in the spaces between the tracks.
They weren't that good, but managed to parlay the hype into 2 top 20 hits from their debut album, Love Missle F1-11 which hit #3 and Twenty-First Century Boy.
Where are they now?
Tony James went on to a brief stint with The Sisters of Mercy, Chris Kavanagh went on to Big Audio Dynamite. Tony James has attempted to reform the band twice, once in the 90's and again in 2001 with Martin Degville and Neal X releasing Piratespace.
