"Formed in 1979 from the remnants of two bands, Get Smart and The Aliens, their line-up was Nick Hanson (vocals), Julian Hanson (drums), and Warwick Fowler (guitar). Initial bassist, Keith Bacon, was replaced early in 1980 by Nigel Russell. Released in 1980, the Feels So Good EP was well received, but problems began to mount: Fowler had acquired the habit of wearing a Nazi SS uniform on stage, which combined with the quartet's pre-existing 'boot boy' following resulted in a total ban from the Auckland club scene. Even so, the record reached number 29 in New Zealand and probably could have sold more, but the label lacked funding. They were even approached by Phonogram and asked to contribute to a 'solid gold' type album. However, when Phonogram heard the song they immediately asked for their compilation advance cheque back! Too punk for the majors!"
