Terri Nunn rejoined the band as singer in 1980, and they signed to independent label Enigma Records on which they released a double A-sided single, "Tell Me Why" / " The Metro ". The single was intended as a one-off, since Crawford was by then focusing on his new band Fahrenheit and regarded Berlin as a "just for fun" side project. [3] However, the single was a success, helping to finance the EP album, Pleasure Victim , which was recorded on a $2,900 budget. [3] The EP included their first significant hit: the controversial synth-driven " Sex (I'm A...) " (1982), which was banned by some radio stations due to its graphic lyrics. The song was intentionally written and composed to get airplay on Los Angeles radio station KROQ , which specialized in playing music that was not heard on other stations, and of which members of the group were fans. [2] Due to the attention brought on by the single, wider release offers were made by larger record labels for Pleasure Victim . [3] Geffen Records' offer was accepted and the label re-released Pleasure Victim worldwide in early 1983. The label also re-released "The Metro", which then became another hit. The band appeared at the 1983 US Festival .
