When the Smithereens were doing very well in 86/87 the story that came back to me via Andy McQueen that the band were fans of The Cleaners and had dranw the attention of Enigma records to us. At one point it was mooted that our signing was imminent. Giles Smith went out and got drunk on the strength of the story. I believe he may have 'borrowed' a bike (easily done in Cambridge). It never happened. We signed to RCA Germany in the end. The rest (literally) is geography.
