After spending years as a garage band with post-punk and post-grunge influences, the band received some attention from the major record label Interscope. However, its members had drug problems which resulted in the group disbanding. Years later, they joined up again. Their major label debut album was Delongpre (2002), which featured songs recorded years earlier.
A second album, Tell Them Hi (2003), received some critical praise, but their popularity did not seem to reach critical mass.
