From 1997 to 2002, Baskervilles performed a handful of well received shows at the Mercury Lounge in the East Village. During that time, Baskervilles recorded 2 sessions at Mitch Easter’s (Let’s Active, R.E.M.) Fidelitorium studio in North Carolina and 1 session at Dubway Studios in New York City. The group made one trip outside of New York City in the summer of 2002 to perform at a museum opening at the Migros Museum in Zurich, Switzerland featuring the artwork of Yayoi Kusama and Michel Auder. The band took a 2 year break while Stephanie had a baby.
Rob Keith and Christoph Gerozissis formed a nocturnal electro group called Autoparty and put out an album called Lumlight. The first New York Baskervilles show in two years happened at Sin-e’ on November 6th, 2003 to celebrate the release of a compilation on Secret Crush Records called Stamp Collecting For Beginners, featuring the Baskervilles song After Work. Secret Crush Records released the first Baskervilles album in spring of 2004 to great acclaim. The band followed up quickly by releasing the punchy new wave inspired Midnight EP in 2005 with a tour of the west coast of the United States.
During the second half of 2005 and early 2006, the Baskervilles were hard at work on album #3 and a video for Midnight At The Underground Club, directed by Jake Hensberry. The Baskervilles spent 2006 - 2008 releasing 14 singles called the Twilight 14 project on Baskervilles.net.
