Penny Leyton did actuallly leave The Bodysnatchers to form The Belle Stars but was later replaced by Clare Hirst who played saxaphone and keyboards. Penny didn't play guitar - she played keyboards and trumpet.

Thanks for the information, I couldn't find very much on them before I posted this.

Some great tracks on that album especially Everytime, Show Off and Scream Jean. It's wierd but I saw them play in 1989 when they were promoting this album. I then saw them play one year later and they refused to play even one track from the album.

I have this album but the cover is different. Anyone know if there were other versions ? It also does not have song 11. Great music.

The original LP has only 10 tracks (well, at least mine, a 1989 Unicorn Records release, does). The CD, it appears, has 11. A check against the info at discogs seems to confirm that.

I had a friend who is a DJ convert this album from cassette to cd for me a year ago. But what a find this is!

Probably the name of this band had something to do with the fact that one of the band members had previously sung with a band called Delta 5 (a funk-influenced post-punk band in the style of Gang Of Four, Mekons, etc). Delta 5 never quite "made it" commercially, but they had a close enough brush with fame (album on Rough Trade; went on a U.S. tour) that it might have been worth trying to capitalize on the name.

Also, re: reader comments about different versions of this album. In addition to the LP & CD, there was a cassette version on the NYC label ROIR re-titled as "Oddball Boy." it had all of the songs from the CD plus 2 more bonus songs (either taken from B-sides or compilation appearances). For some reason there's no mention of it on discogs.com, much less on the "Nana Choc Choc" page.
