Lazy Ways followed a couple of years later. Produced by Stuart Moxham, it sounded almost professional in comparison with their first album. The charming, homemade clatter of Beach Party is replaced by a softer, more polished intimacy. By this time, Tracy had gone off to college and could only record with the band on holidays. They split up around the same time this was released, with Jane and Alice forming Grab Grab the Haddock, and Tracy finding fame and fortune with Everything But the Girl.
