It turned out to be their only hit song in the U.S., peaking at #17 on August 22, 1987.
They had a little more success in their home country, scoring a couple of hits from their 1989 follow-up album, Gatecrashing – “Blow the House Down” (which featured Queen’s Brian May on guitar) and “Room in Your Heart“.
The band broke up in 1990 due to artistic differences.
