Ensign's idea (or Phonogram's) was to see if they could re-chart a number of tracks at once to riase the profile ready for the next album. I worked in planning for the distribution centre and they certainly sold - I can't find any record of chrt re-entry though.
I saw them on the tour to promote this and 1980 being what it was there was still an element of attitude about the gigs from the opening welcome of "stand up you fuckers" to Bob pointing out the group of us in the crowd who hadn't paid but were guests of the record company - resulting in much abuse from the paying punters.
They had one further good run at the charts as "Banana Republic" the reggae flavoured single leading "Mondo" did well hitting no 3 but being a real radio favourite at that time.
Above all that they made great singles and any compilation (of which "Loudmouth" is best) is definitely worth an investment.
