The VIP's were formed in 1978 while at Warwick University. Within weeks they were gigging at clubs in the Midlands, often on the same bill as THE SPECIALS in Coventry.

Soon they found a manager, Clive Solomon, who with Timmy Mallet (now a TV and Radio presenter) and both students at the university, financed the group's first single the EP 'Music For Funsters.

In the summer of 1978 they built up a loyal following in London. The single was picked up by John Peel, who played it constantly on his BBC radio show through the year.

The 3 track EP, featuring 'I'm Perfect', 'I Believe' and 'Boys of the City' was released on Clive Solomon's own 'Bust' label
