Jumpy and Shimby found each other via a posting on a well known classifieds website, and hit it off right away.

They tried playing with several different people over the span of a couple of months, before finally asking Emily to join them on keyboards in December of 2007. Jacco later joined the band in November of 2008. It was a match made in heaven, in more ways than one...Shimby and Emily are a couple, but the actual musical chemistry between the four of them was apparent from the start. Combining a wide range of influences...from Indie Rock, New Wave, 50's / 60's Garage, Punk, Dance and all shades of Pop music to create a sound that is uniquely there own. In the short time they have been together, they have been a featured artist on Chicago's own radio stations: WXRT 93.1 fm, WLUW 88.7fm, and have been asked to contribute songs to Blalock's Indie Rock playlist, alongside other amazing bands/artist's such as: No Age, Women, Dan Deacon, Los Campesinos!, etc.

In addition to opening for well known touring national acts such as: The Black Lips, Vivian Girls, Crystal Antlers, Best Coast, Candy Claws,Titus Andronicus, Spiral Beach, Shell Shag, Turbo Fruits, The Birthday Suits, The Blind Shake...etc. Read more on Last.fm.
