Not Your Average B Side

Their third album, Small Victories, produced by John Oates (Hall & Oates) and The Parachute Club, was released in 1986 to good reviews and sold over 50,000 records in Canada which, by 1980’s standards, was very good. The band toured Canada, Europe and parts of the U.S. By this point they had a acquired a reputation as a popular hip sub-culture band but they were unable to cross into the mainstream success that the U.S. record company had wanted. The band disbanded in late 1989 but not without making an indelible mark on the music scene as a progressive iconoclastic pop political outfit that was helped bring attention to the ever growing world music scene in Canada and abroad.
