Luke and Phillip first started playing together in London in 1963, before either was born (they are mid-thirties now). They went through several name and stylistic changes. Sonic Death Monkey (easy listening) begat the Originals (death metal), which begat the New Originals (bluegrass cover band), which begat Mulligan (golf pro-shop specialty music - a rather small market).
When Kevin and Brian joined the band, the band became Artistic Differences and switched styles again to indie rock. Brian was later replaced by Doug on bass, primarily because Doug's dad supplies us with incredible local honey.

To overlay a boy-band trope on an indie rock band: Phillip is the boyishly cute one - think Justin Timberlake during his perm phase. Luke is the bad boy, as evidenced by his engineering Ph.D. Doug is the mysterious one, with ever-shifting facial hair. And while Kevin looks reserved, he's the one with the amazing falsetto.

Fun Fact: While it is widely believed that the song "Sweet Caroline" was written by Neil Diamond referring to Caroline Kennedy, it was actually written by Phillip and Luke (at that time under the Originals moniker), referring to North Carolina (by far the sweeter of the Carolina's). Okay, that's not 100% true, but we do play a rockin' cover of "Sweet Caroline" that's a real crowd pleaser.
