Vocalist Pauline Black wrote about sexism, racism, and social issues. Their debut release was the AA side of The Specials single Gangsters in the summer of 1979, which only consisted of Neol Davies and John Bradbury (of The Specials) before quickly forming a full band by the end of the year.  Releasing their follow up single On My Radio which reached No. 6 in the UK charts.  Their debut album Too Much Pressure was released in February 1980 and reached No. 5 in the UK charts.
