formed in 2001 after the dissolution of prior project c(X), modes of transport was a creative step in a new direction for both Rob and Brennan. Rob and Brennan have been longtime childhood friends, having grown up on the mean streets of Chatham, Ontario. meeting in public school, music has long been an outlet for both members, and was the source of a budding friendship. Jackie was added to the fold earlier this year. After meeting over two years ago, Brennan and Jackie have developed a strong relationship together, and when not recording or playing music, you can often find Jackie and Brennan around various shows in the city.
