As far as I know, they never played in the U.S. and their music was 
available almost only on Rough Trade imports.  They did get props from 
Christgau, Marcus and others at the time, which probably helped 
somewhat.  I would think that some enterprising label then would have seen 
the potential of "Split" as a novelty hit or something.
