They took their name from a 17th Century British painting and their sound was influenced by an Art School sensibility, The Velvet Underground, Lloyd Cole and the Commotions and latterly The Stone Roses. They released three singles on Manchester Based Sheer Joy Records; Sympathy (for two girls) (1990), Starhappy (1990) and Pale Horse (1991) all of which made the Top 20 of the Indie Chart, and issued a promo single with remixes by The Orb [1]. Their strongest sales however were in Scandinavia, particularly Sweden. The first single was produced by Michael Johnson, who was responsible for most of New Order's back catalogue including the "Brotherhood", "Low-life" and "Technique" albums. In 1991, the band recorded two BBC Sessions, one for the Mark Goodier Evening Session (Radio 1) and one for Hit the North (Radio 5), while John Peel championed the band's singles extensively. They also appeared on the soundtrack to the Diane Ladd and Max Parrish film "Hold me, thrill me, kiss me, kill me" (1993).

The band split in 1994. They achieved critical acclaim in The NME and Melody Maker, and shared a BBC Session studio with David Bowie.
