In the summer of 1980, The Teardrop Explodes began recording their debut album, Kilimanjaro, at Rockfield Studios in Monmouthshire. The sessions were interrupted by touring requirements, and also by internal dissension. This peaked when Cope and Balfe opted to fire Mick Finkler as guitarist. It reached No. 29 on the UK chart and was certified Silver by the BPI, as Kilimanjaro had been. The next single, "Colours Fly Away" stalled at No. 57 in the UK chart, signaling the end of the Teardrops as a popular singles band. It was like building a house on scaffolding, on top of a tank moving at three miles an hour.

Colours fly away from you, Lost in valid wondering, Angels fly their camoflage. Darkness that is shattered by the dawn. There's a new boy here to play our game, Shoot my eyes out I could wake up dreaming, This is where I score, Wise up to my tricks, Colour in my face and yell extremist. Colours fly away from you, Lost in valid wondering. Angels fly their camoflage, Darkness that is shattered by the dawn. Someone's sleeping in my attic room, Someone's watching everything I'm doing, Harry ranjet sings, Save a song for me, Heard you on the radio today.

More experimental and introspective than Kilimanjaro, the Teardrop Explodes’ second album, Wilder, was issued late in 1981. It again peaked inside the UK Top 30 and went silver and while it received a mixed critical reception, the record’s critical standing has since grown considerably. Its tracklist features two further minor hits, ‘Colours Fly Away’ and ‘Tiny Children’ as well as confirmed fan favourites such as ‘The Culture Bunker’, ‘Like Leila Khaled Said’ and ‘The Great Dominions’.
