Martha and the Muffins
Where are they now? Their career actually went beyond this one song. I seem to remember them having a song on one of the "Romancing the Stone" movie soundtracks (but the name eludes me).
Martha Ladly now runs the design department for Real World Records. Martha Johnson and Mark Gane formed M + M and had a hit "Black Stations White Stations". They did some soundtrack work and a childrens album "Songs from the Treehouse".

Tim Gane became a driver for the Canadian Automobile Association, Carl Finkle became an architect and swimming pool designer, and Andy Haas a security guard in an art museum.

Safety Dance, 1982. The song was such a big hit, it was parodied by Weird Al Yankovic.
