    They were one-hit wonders.
    Their third album was assembled using outtakes from the previous two albums after the band disintegrated.
    'Ride Captain Ride' is sometimes said to be about the capture of the USS Pueblo by North Korea, but the band denied it. (Also, the Pueblo had a crew of 82 rather than the '73 men' of the song's opening line.)
    Pinera later said the opening line was inspired by the Rhodes 73-Stage Piano.
