Does everybody else's IRCD37 (SO36 Club , 8th

I was interested to read from the brainwashed website
(from Sounds at the time): 

"This new streamlined handluggage style will enable TG
to conquer Italy, Japan and America in the coming year
in a series of hit-and-run kamikaze missions."

OK so they did the States, sort of did Italy, but
