Some of the songs contain the usual youth themes of love and lost love, some are covers, including a great version of The Beatles, "She Said" and others are politically-tinged observations of England in the Thatcher-era, such as "Maybe Tomorrow", "The British Way of Life", and "In My Street". The band unfortunately was unable to stay together due to poor management, internal conflict, an inability to shake the "mod" tag and a host of other issues beyond their control but had they been able to weather the storm, who knows what might have been. They showed such great potential that they might have rivaled The Jam had they stayed together.
Guitarist and primary song-writer Chris Pope and drummer Brett "Buddy"Ascott still play together in a band named "Pope" and have released new material and are currently playing the club circuit in the UK to very positive reviews.
If you want an excellent example of "Mod Revival", this is it.
