All born and bred in Newcastle NSW, the brigade formed in Sydney in mid 2004 and began playing around Sydney in mid 2005. Members had previously played in successful Newcastle groups such as; Army of Prawns, Scagnetti, Blue Apple Daze and Wallspace before coming together in an abnormally sized kitchen in Redfern over some Stones Green Ginger Wine and lemonade. The final aromas wofting from the brewing mix of their talents are beginning to intoxicate punters around Sydney in venues such as The Hopetoun and Candy's Apartment.

Influences include: Teenage Fanclub, Gomez, Architecture in Helsinki, Custard, Fleetwood Mac, Evan Dando.
