The group felt insecure about the lack of a contract and were frustrated by the direction in which Heart Management was steering them, and in October , armed with a catalogue of demos and dance routines, they began touring management agencies. They persuaded Bob Herbert to set up a showcase performance for the group in front of industry writers, producers, and artists and repertoire men in December at the Nomis Studios in Shepherd's Bush , where they received an "overwhelmingly positive" reaction. Encouraged by the reaction they had received at the Nomis showcase, all five members delayed signing contracts on the legal advice from, amongst others, Adams' father Anthony Adams. In March , because of the group's frustration at their management's unwillingness to listen to their visions and ideas, they parted with Heart Management. During the summer of that year, the group toured record labels in London and Los Angeles with Fuller and finally signed a deal with Virgin Records in September In the weeks leading up to the release, the video for "Wannabe" got a trial airing on The Box music channel.
