The band would also like to further add that they tend to influence eachother, occasionally that being an advantage, occasionally not. What with bad habits and all.

"Imagine a kind of distaff Tom Waits - utterly individualistic singing framed by some of the most creative musicians around" - Alex Varty, Georgia Straight

The website,, is the official resource for the band. Includes reviews, free mp3 downloads, lyrics and contact information.
