Description: "Formed and led by record producer David Cunningham, the group was a loose collective of avant-garde and free improvising musicians, such as David Toop and Steve Beresford as instrumentalists, with Deborah Evans-Stickland, Patti Palladin, and Vivien Goldman as main vocalists.
In August 1979 the band appeared twice on BBC's Top of the Pops performing their hit single "Money (That's What I Want)." They also appeared in February 1980 performing follow-up single "TV." Virgin Records extended the band's recording contract after the success of "Money." The group released their début album The Flying Lizards in 1979. The album included two songs – "Her Story" and "The Window" – written and sung by Goldman. Their single issues included their postmodern cover versions of songs such as Eddie Cochran's "Summertime Blues" and "Money."
