    One of their early gigs was promoted as a benefit for 'the Deprived Children of Hackney'; at the end of the show, they announced that they were deprived children in question and beat a hasty exit.
    Buster was known for wagging his tongue at the audience.
    They were banned from Italian TV after Buster, having been told the Pope was watching the show, mooned the audience.
    The band underwent numerous personnel changes with Buster as the only constant.
    The band sponsored the Margate Football Club.
    They are known for their high-energy live shows.
    'Trouser Press' wrote, 'Their records, juvenile though they may sometimes be, consistently provide smile-inducing, good-natured, toe-tapping value in every groove.'
