One short year ago six disenchanted scholars in training decided they ought to band together for some musical good-times. Quickly recognizing that they despised each other's musical tastes too much to ever agree on a cover tune, they opted instead to play only originals.

What you can find here and elsewhere on the web is a fraction of the usually funky, occasionally dark, often tongue-in-cheek, reminiscently jazzy, "hyphen-rock" sound played by The Department.
