Several coffee house and solo street performances during this time were the breeding ground for the material to come. Returning from North Wales, Aussie reunited with Joey the Coyote and began work on ADD MOSS's fourth album, "Anima" Based on the romance of Tristan & Iseult, Jungian philosophy and deep personal reflection, the record begins organically, sampling Celtic stylings that wind their way back into Rock. It was during this time that Robert "The Chief" Cheifetz made his first appearance performing saxophone on the song, "The Jasper Ring." Promoting the record, the duo performed at a Martinez Art Show and enlisted the aid of a friend, Jon Lesher to play guitar. . . As new songs began to emerge, ADD MOSS became a three piece including the talents of Jon Lesher.

The trio laid down basics for 6 songs at the famous "Plant" in Sausalito and then self produced 17 more to comprise their fifth album, "Death Of The Exhibition." With a running time filling a full length CD, the record ranges through various styles, sonorously landing somewhere between Ween and The Beatles, "White Album" The trio performed one lone show together at Armando's in Martinez before calling in John Riggs and Robert "The Chief" Cheifetz to perform the duties of Drums and Saxophone, respectively.
