The group released an album titled The Flying Lizards in1979; their singles include postmoderncover versions of songs such as
Eddie Cochran's "Summertime Blues" 1978, "The Laughing Policeman" 1980 (which was not featured on an album, but was released under the name The Suspicions),"Move On Up" 1981, "Sex Machine" 1984 and "Dizzy Miss Lizzie" (1984) and several originals. Their cover of Barrett Strong's "Money" remains popular, and is used in The Wedding Singer, Empire Records, Nip Tuck, the first Charlie's Angels and Lord of War. Their album Top Ten consists entirely of covers, done in a deliberately emotionless, harsh and robotic style. After the band's break-up, a posthumous album of dubinstrumentals, The Secret Dub Life of the Flying Lizards, appeared.
