The band released their debut EP "Puppets of War" (also had singles versions of Lies, Chronic Generation, and Mindless Few) With the Success of the EP led to an invitation to join The Exploited, Discharge, Anti-Pasti, and The Anti-Nowhere League to go to the now infamous Apocalypse tour that rampaged through the UK in the summer of '81.
