Pneumania began life as Snow White and the Sic Punks, with a fellow called The Captain on drums. According to the UK Decay website: "...before long the first ‘Live gig’ was on the horizon. This provided a dilemma for ‘The Captain’ as the ‘Jets’ whom he played bass for as well, were on the same bill! This wouldn't go down very well with the Jets. To get round this the Captain played the first ‘Snow White and the sic Punks’ gig completely wrapped up ‘Mummy’ style in bandages, so as not to be noticed by the Jets. Half way through the gig the bandages inevitably started to come adrift eventually leading to severe embarrassment on the Captain's behalf. After this, the Captain decided to move into management, vacating the Drum kit."

They gigged with The Resistors (who later became UK Decay) and released this solitary split single before going away.
