Kevin Armstrong was the band's writer, singer and guitarist, with Matthew Seligman on bass and Kim Barti on drums. This was 1980, a golden era for independent record labels, when Stiff Records  were on the charts most of the year, John Peel fulfilled the dreams of countless musician around the country by playing their do-it-yourself records on the radio and Rough Trade Distribution made sure you could find their records in the shops.

The strongest feedback Drip Dry Zone came from the United States, where college radio loved it. The band toured the UK with the Thompson Twins. After Thomas Dolby came to add keyboards on the second album, New Opium, he recruited Kevin to play guitar in his band. Kevin went on to stints with David Bowie, Iggy Pop and (currently) Sinead O'Connor, while becoming producer of Keziah Jones and many more.
