Within a short time, the group became well known around London, notably appearing on the front cover of Sounds magazine early in 1981.

The Belle Stars were signed by Stiff Records, then highly successful due to its star act, Madness.

The Belle Stars debut single, "Hiawatha"/"Big Blonde" was released in the late spring of 1981, produced by Madness producers Clive Langer & Alan Winstanley. The single, and several others released from the album failed to chart.

In January 1983 the Belle Stars released what would be their signature single, "Sign Of The Times", peaking at number three, and a chart success throughout Europe. The song's video, showing the Belle Stars in tuxedos, was also played frequently by MTV in the United States.

In 1989, the Belle Stars finally had a big US chart hit, when "Iko Iko" reached number 14 on the Billboard Top 100 in March, after it was included on the soundtrack of the film Rain Man. The song had been a favourite of Dustin Hoffman's.
