The three obtained a contract with Virgin Records, where they had success almost immediately in 1982, in the UK, with 'Give Me'.

The track later became a Top 5 single on the U.S. R & B charts on the Epic label.

In 1983, the chart success followed with 'Minefield' and 'Teacher' respectively.

In 1985, the album 'Shake' was released and caused a stir with the track 'In The Sand', which has become highly collectable in the U.K. on the rare groove scene.

The three disbanded shortly afterwards.
