What there is is a 12" E.P called Grumble and a track on the Raging Sun comp. LP called Graveyard Town and that's about it! Found this on a Capt. Beefheart site where they explain why they covered Big Eyed Beans from Venus........ Bizarrely named band with a (now very rare) four track release.

The single was played on various radio shows, John Peel of course gave it a spin in the UK and on the World Service, and it was played thru Europe. It was played live at a Miners strike benefit gig where we baffled the audience! Our whole show was recorded and broadcast live from Amsterdam Paradiso for VPRO radio in 1986 so a live version is in their archives and we did a thing in Hamburg but I have forgotten a lot. Also the bassist Chris Ellis was a Huddersfield punk/new wave band called the Prisoners Read more on Last.fm.
