The band released its first 3 albums independently, selling almost 30,000 cds before signing a brief and ill-fated deal with Capricorn Records in 1995. Larger scale success came when they signed with indie label Blackbird who funded the recording of the 'Super Natural' album, and whose uplift venture with Sire/London eventually provided the radio and distribution muscle that got the breaking single "Hooch" to radio stations around the world. Their peak of popularity came in 1998, when "Hooch" (from the 'Super Natural' album) was featured in Adam Sandler's hit movie The Waterboy. From 1998 to 2000, it charted in the top 10 on Billboard's Pop and Hot AC charts, as well as top 20 on the Modern Rock charts. The band enjoyed their 'new-found' popularity, playing radio shows and festival crowds around the country.
"Hooch" has been heard in "My Name is Earl", "Yes Dear", and "Clueless", and also was featured on the Scrubs Vol. 1 Soundtrack. Following the AOL/Time Warner merger, and the subsequent dissolution of all joint ventures under the Warner Music Group umbrella, the band was independent once again, and they released People Are Moving in a co-distribution deal with What Are Records in 2001. The band toured internationally in Japan and Korea, before finally deciding to take a hiatus. They rejoined in their studio for 2 days in 2004 to record the tracks that would become 2006's 'In the Juju Underworld'. The current members are: * Nate Brown (drums, percussion, vocals) * Craig Honeycutt (guitar, lead vocals) * David Slankard (bass) * Stephen Van Dam (guitar, alto sax, clarinet, vocals) Past Members: Terence 'Wolfe' Quinn (keyboards, trombone) Doug Wannamaker (keyboards) Richard Bradley (tenor sax, guitar, vocals) Read more on Last.fm.
