In a period of a little over two years, Secret Affair had five releases in the UK Singles Chart, and released three albums. The debut single "Time For Action" reached number 13 in the UK chart, putting them at the forefront of the 'Mod Revival' movement. More chart success followed with "Let Your Heart Dance", "My World", "Do You Know" and "Sound of Confusion".

Squire will be the special guest supporting all tour dates, the band released the first single of the 'Mod Revival' genre "Get Ready to Go" in 1979. Fronted by Anthony Meynell, Squire released two fantastic singles for Arista - "Walking Down The Kings Road", with the anthemic "It’s A Mod, Mod World" on the flip side, and "Face Of Youth Today". Squire went on to record five albums and ten singles, including the sunshine pop album "Get Smart" in 1983, and the ground-breaking "September Gurls" album in 1984, the title track being a cover of Big Star’s then an undiscovered classic.
