History

Tim Rogers formed the first version of the band with his school friend Nick Tischler and his older brother Jaimme in December 1989. This initial line-up was short lived and by the end of 1990 both Nick and Jaimme had left the band. They were replaced by the group's one-time sound mixer Andy Kent on bass and Russell Hopkinson on drums, creating the core line-up of the band which has remained ever since. Since then the line-up has been augmented by Davey Lane of The Pictures on second guitar.

The band released several EPs and singles in the early 90s, though the real breakthrough came when Lee Renaldo of Sonic Youth caught the band performing at the 1993's Big Day Out festival and was impressed enough to produce its fourth EP, Coprolalia, and later the debut album, Sound as Ever. The long player went on to win the 1993 ARIA Award for Best Alternative Release.

Further success came with the albums Hi Fi Way and Hourly Daily, with both picking up ARIA Awards. 1999 saw frontman Tim Rogers release his first solo album What Rhymes With Cars And Girls, followed up in 2004 by the record Spit Polish. September 2003 the band parted ways with its record label BMG, with whom it had been signed with since 1998 after it acquired rooArt Records.

Recently, Davey performed at the 2004 ARIA awards as part of the supergroup The Wrights, featuring members of many other Australian rock bands.
