Although the group only released one official album, their singles and various other tracks have been packaged into numerous collections, and they remain one of the better known bands out of the early goth scene.

(mmm, warm!) contaminated blood products imported from the U.S. in the 1970's and the 1980's: quite content with just sitting here watching television pumping away: and menstruation does not occur.
