Their sole release in 1982 was one of the early Flying Nun singles (FN009) and just 305 copies were pressed. Complete with violin, the A-side ‘Don’t Deceive Me’ was a rare original for a band that specialised more in 60s and 70s garage and punk covers ranging from The Velvet Underground to Pere Ubu. But it’s their helter skelter version of The Sonics’ garage classic ‘The Witch’ on the flip side that has been anthologised over the years. ‘Don’t Deceive Me’ was finally reissued on Flying Nun’s Time to Go compilation in 2011.
The front cover of Don’t Deceive Me is a Ronnie van Hout screen print of James Dean in a scene from the movie Giant.
