When did you form?We formed in March/April of 2004 with members of defunct Houston acts Ignite the Morning, the Colour Clear, the Emerging Culture
Releases/discography:White Walled Room EP - Dec '04, Double Feature split EP with Muldoon (San Antonio) - July '05
What artists have had the biggest impact on you? A general list: Queen, Björk, Tears for Fears, Silverchair, the Fire Theft, Saves the Day, Self, Ben Folds, Minus the Bear, New Order, Bowie, Skinny Puppy, Fairweather, Jaco Pastorius, Primus and, of course, AC/DC.
How do you pay the bills? Tim and Mike wait tables, Joey has an office job, Jason works at a hotel, Matt works in a warehouse, and Chris is graduating in a couple weeks and is looking for work conducive with being in a band that tours.
Finish this sentence: If we didn't have to worry about money, we'd probably all just live together and sit around in our PJs watching Hilary Duff movies and giving each other back rubs. And talking about the latest teen heartthrob. And eating ice cream.

Native or transplant? Native Houstonians
When did you form? We formed in February 2004
Who or what do you think you sound like? Noisy yet melodic, art-house garage rock with a fusion of poetic and powerful lyrics. We have been called "trippy-craze-rock" and "freak-rock," but we're not sure what those mean.
How do you pay the bills?Megan spends her day filling the orders of people at our local Starbucks, Vance works at Half Price Books, while Mark and Ray are telephone interviewers (don't laugh, please) at the Gallup Organization.
What's the biggest misconception about you or your band?Because we play in the dark, don't smile much, write serious lyrics and destroy our instruments at shows, people tend to think we are antisocial or disturbed.
