Background informationEdit

In 1981, the band released their debut single "Tomorrow Will Do". This was followed by "Welcome to the Monkey House" which didn't reach the UK Top 40 Chart, but EMI did not delete it for a long time. The reason being it sold weekly in very small amounts and became a club hit in cities including Birmingham.

"Baby Clothes" was the band's third single released in 1982. Also that year a promo 7" split disc single was issued with the New Sounds New Styles magazine. The single featured "Qu'est-Ce Que C'est Que Ça" by Pete Shelley and "Amor" by Animal Magnet.

Paul Caplin left Animal Magnet to become the 'secret mastermind' behind the 1980s avant-garde new wave pop project Haysi Fantayzee.
