When the album and its 1990 follow-up I Want Too Much both performed poorly, A House was dropped from their label; while rumors of the band's demise circulated, they instead signed to Setanta and resurfaced with the EPs "Doodle" and "Bingo." "Endless Art," a single from the latter release produced by Edwyn Collins, engendered considerable controversy over its subject matter, a list of long-dead writers, musicians and painters whose work still endured in the modern era; because the run-down included only male artists, feminists were outraged, and A House ultimately cut a new, distaff version of the track for their 1991 LP I Am the Greatest.
Although the album initially appeared resigned to the same commercial fate as its predecessors, the single "Take It Easy on Me" became a hit in 1992; I Am the Greatest was subsequently reissued, and soon A House had its first major success. With Collins again in the producer's seat, the group resurfaced in 1994 with Wide Eyed & Ignorant, which met with little commercial interest; undeterred, A House returned to the studio, recording No More Apologies in 1996. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi
