With Marsh as bass player, they moved to Sydney and there joined by Ingrid Spielman on keyboards (1979 - 81) quickly became known for running against the grain musically, lyrically, and stylistically. Always fronted by songwriter Studdert, the lineup changed marginally for each album until they finally called it a day in 1990. After moving to the UK during the 90s, Studdert formed Mumbo Jumbo - touring and releasing an album - before a brief stint back in Australia where he fronted an 8-piece band called The Inside Up in 2000/2001.

They could loosely be described as 'post-punk' (as a period), but certainly none of the 'genres/tags'. 2) There was also a thrash metal band out of LA in the late 80's, and early 90's that went by the name Tactics. They came and went without making much of an impact. They were actually quite good--solid musicianship, strong vocals, and decent song-writing. They released one full-length album in 1991 called The Master Plan (9 tracks--The Master Plan, Just Another Deal, On the Attack, Fear No Evil, Something Wicked This Way Comes, Hard Times, Blessed and the Damned, Burn, Spare No Lives); and a 3 track EP in 1987 called Prey Upon the Weak (Beautiful Day for a War, Playing to Win, Eye to Eye).

Tactics were: Steve Gaines (Ironicly the brother of Stryper bassist Tim Gaines) on vocals (of Abattoir (US), Bloodlust (US), Dreams of Damnation, Pagan War Machine, Anger As Art, Bitch (US)), Danny Blais on guitar, Sinhue Quirin on guitar(Society one, Ministry,Revolting cocks), and Eddie Livingston, (Evildead/Terror, Play Chaos, Armored Saint) on drums. Former members also include Rigo Amezcua, Greg Braun, and Ben Hoffman. 3) A post-rock band from San Marcos, Texas. Read more on Last.fm.
