The short-lived New Zealand pop group Coup D'Etat was led by vocalist/guitarist Harry Lyon, a onetime member of Hello Sailor. Bassist Neil Hannan, ex-Red Mole keyboardist Jan Preston and drummer Steve Osborne rounded out the group, originally dubbed Wolfgang upon their formation in early 1980. Osborne soon exited, replaced by drummer Paul Dunningham; in short time the band's debut single "No Music on My Radio" was released.

Coup D'Etat's sophomore effort "Doctor I Like Your Medicine" was their lone hit, peaking in the Top Ten; a self-titled LP followed. After just one more single, "Permanent Hire," the band dissolved, briefly reforming in 1982 before calling it quits for good. ~ Jason Ankeny, All Music Guide
