Their latest was a collaboration with the Focus group titled Broadcast and the Focus Group Investigate Witch Cults of the Radio Age.
The group was heavily influenced by the 1960s American group, The United States of America and used the same electric sounds as them. Although, they added their own style giving their music a more edgier sci-fi futuristic sound.
Trish was one of the major attractions of the band with her soothing voice adding a contrasting effect to the electrical sounds.
