Lisa Sinclair joined the group on alto sax and clarinet.

Julie Hadwin who later went on to guest with The Style Council, sung on the this EP, replacing Kim Glenister, who fell out with the founding members Nick Page and the Leigh brothers. Both were pressed in 'minimum runs' of 1000 copies and are uber-rare and valuable today. The group disbanded in 1982/3 with the Leigh brothers continuing on as Johnny 7 until the mid- to late-1980s. Highlight gigs were at the Rock Garden, pubs in Hampstead and north London area, Brighton Poly, Bath Academy of Art, Rickmansworth (supporting Wilco Johnson and the Solid Senders) and Cassiobury College, Watford in 1978 where the 3-piece 'The Executives' opened for Anorexia. Two members of the Executives went on to form Wham!
