Their final song to appear on the charts was “Ignorance” (with Siobhan Maher Kennedy), which was on the UK chart at No. 72 for one week in November 1992.

 

The group performed on several TV shows between 1991–1993, including four appearances on Top of the Pops, plus The Hitman and Her and an episode of Frank Sidebottom’s Fantastic Shed Show.
