For what it's worth they got pretty regular airplay on WNYU's New Afternoon
Show when I was there in '80/'81, and I feel like I used to hear "Die
Matrosen" a lot in clubs, so people who were inclined to seek out new stuff
could have come across them pretty easily in NYC at least. "Ain't You" and
"Eiseger Wind" were also getting airplay, but "Die Matrosen" would certainly
qualify as a 'hit' in those circles.
