The trio of Montrealers, who originally named themselves after Radio Free Europe, began performing in 1987, with brief comedy segments during other programs on CBC radio. They were also featured in the late '80s on CKUT 90.3, McGill University's student radio station. They rapidly became known for such finely absurdist sketches as "Bulbous Bouffant" and for their satirical songs, including "I don't want to go to Toronto". The video for their "Grunge Song", a catchy and successful parody of early 1990s song writing, was frequently shown on MuchMusic.
Since then, they have had regular radio programs, television appearances, and live performances, written two sitcoms for YTV, and had a screenplay optioned by Paramount Pictures. They've also released two CDs ("Sketches, Songs, and Shoes" and "Get Spiffy"), one DVD ("The Complete First Episode") and several "downloadable albums".
The trio are currently writing the script for a feature-length animated film for children, and they're also developing several TV projects with Sardine Productions
