They released three singles, ‘Bend & Flush’, ‘Throbbing Gristle’ and ‘Telephone Masturbator’ and an album ‘Pink Pork’ in 1977/8 on their own Wood Records, the debut single ‘Bend and Flush’, which went on to sell over 20,000 singles.
Probably on of the world’s rudest band, their tongue-in-cheek, expletive style was the fore runner for bands like The Macc Lads etc.
The band shied away from publicity and always maintained an air of mystery about them. The naughty content of their material ensured they were banned from many gigs, compounding this mystique. The split up in 1979 and the drummer went on to play in The Revillos.
