Ahhh yes, the fabulous stability of the record business. I don't have any album covers to read and check, but I bet these guys didn't get any songwriting credits, or didn't write any of the hits.
But how can you be in a band that has a 30 year career, has hits in the UK, Europe, and the US and still end up bankrupt?
"One in Ten" and a lot of their early stuff has some great bass lines on them, btw.
