Commercially, of course, it was nowhere. Until re-release in 1979 (with distribution by Virgin) pushes it to UK#31.
Stray Cat Strut, another single from the album, makes US#3, UK#11. The Long Island, NY band releases 10 more albums before its 1995 breakup. In 2004 it reforms to release 2-disk live recording Rumble in Brixton.
While debut album Is This It (UK#1, US#33) doesn’t set the US charts on fire, succeeding albums all make it into the top-10 in English-speaking countries — including 2011’s Angles(*) which includes Under Cover of Darkness.
