The group was heavily inspired by pop icons Big Star. What separates The Deal from other PowerPop bands of the era was their terrible luck. They had high level supporters - Ramones manager Linda Stein, who helped get them signed to Bearsville records. As the EP was being launched Bearsville went under due to a split with parent company Warner Bros.
The Deal went back into the studio. Albert Grossman - head of Bearsville was so impressed with the result, he planned to use The Deal as a large part of his plan to get Bearsville going again - Amazingly, Grossman dies in route flying to see financial backers. With no record deal and simply playing live for a few years, the band decided to break up. Before they can, they're contacted by Jody Stephens from Memphis' Ardent Studios in another effort to create a record.
'Brave New World' is finished in 1987 - 8 years after the band formed. Few labels were interested in the record even with The Deal being listed in Musician Magazine as one of the top 20 unsigned bands The Deal briefly tried to sell the record themselves, but limited funds and building disgust with the music industry lead The Deal to complete their plans to disband in 1988. Rumor has it that drummer Mike Clarke just left - leaving his drums in the studio and never came back for them. 24 years after they formed, Not Lame Records releases the compilation 'Goodbye September' finally getting The Deal songs to the public 3) The Deal was also one of the better Belgian hardcore bands. They have split up.
