During the wave of Brisbane based rock artists to hit the Australian Top 40 during the mid-late 1990's, this band virtually missed the boat. Led by brothers Nathan and Luke Thomas and featuring Savage Garden drummer Glen Gibson, this album drew from the spectrum of British 80's dark electronic pop mixed with heavy alternative rock. It had nods to Pop Will Eat Itself (vocalist Clint Mansell was co-producer), Curve, The Cure, Garbage, The Pixies, and even drips of Public Enemy. The singles "Trashed", "Homosapien", "Good For Me" and "She Said" were favourites with radio but failed to impact the charts. "Homosapien" was used in the film "The Craic" with comedian Jimeoin as an Irish immigrant, whilst "She Said" has been used as the credits for rock video show "Rage" when they omit a 'banned' video from their top 40 countdown. The band were dropped by Festival almost a year after they signed and split in 2002 after releasing the critically acclaimed "Accelerator" EP on MGM. Luke Thomas eventually found commercial success with Davey Lane's band The Pictures as a bassist and vocalist. Guitarist Jeff Lovejoy now fronts his own band Lovejoy with his sister Kylie and is still a much in-demand music producer in Brisbane.
