Duff's vocals have been described as a sounding like "Morrissey trained by Scott Walker" (Q Magazine). The band's sound was similar to that of Suede, but with a heavier rock approach. They created a gothic atmosphere, but also came up with catchy pop hooks. Duff's lyrics were often highly personal and confessional, at odds with the confidence with which he sang. Singles included "Another Night In", "Beautiful Alone", "Sway", "Freak", and "The Greatest Show On Earth".
The band split up on the 20th of April 1998.
Patrick Duff released a solo album on 21st June 2005, called Luxury Problems, and in 2007 began playing in Rosabella. Lee joined Suede in 2001 and Placebo in 2006. Allen, Pransky-Poole and Langley formed Saturation Point, while Powell formed OSKAR.
