Discovered by disc jockey Noel Ball, they signed with the local Nasco label and recorded ‘Oh Julie’, a song co-written by Ball. The single climbed to number 5 in the US chart but the group’s three follow-up singles failed. Although they toured following the single’s success, the group went its separate ways within a year.
