(?!) The Planets recorded and produced their debut cassette Learn to Say Goodnight (1995)on 4-track in the basement of 3 Ring Neck, the infamous epicenter of the LI indie rock pop scene. It featured fan favorites "Befriending Darcy" and "Slice me on Cheerios" as well as the sentimental "California." Florida-based label Papercut then released a split-cassette with the Planets and The Cups, "A History of Rain" which included "Yr. Version of Cool." Following that, the Planets released their song "Super-8" on a split 7" from papercut records with tracks by Low, Lois and The Receptionists. They also released a split 7" with fellow Long Islanders and kindred spirits My Favorite on Harriet Records, with their song "Yr Version of Cool" on one side and My Favorite's "Working Class Jacket" on the other.
They contributed to comps based on Long Island, including the Comp Shmomp series, the first of which included their song "Intrigue and Division" as well as many other throughout the U.S. In 2000, Tara pulled together their final recordings, including the anthemic and desperate "Franny" and mastered them together with all earlier recordings for the collection "Music Makes me Think of You." The band spent alot of time riding around Long Island and in NYC to obscure practice spaces, drinking coffee in Dunkin Donuts, watching TV, sometimes fighting, always striving for music that meant something, made you think, feel and maybe even dance.
