Nellfee and Abdul Hadi was recruited early 2005 before the recording of the new album.

In 1996, John Boniface (bassist) sent their most successful demo titled Thirtyzeroeight to Paul Moss, one of Positive Tones highly rated producer. The demo automatically caught Paul Moss interest and immediately offered nicestupidplayground a compilation album deal. The compilation which was released in 1997 entitled Boys & Girls 1 + 1 = 3 in which nicestupidplayground contributed 3 songs- Bedroom Window, She Wants and and I dont admire. Bedroom Window was the main single for the compilation and was well received everywhere.

It was a successful year for nicestupidplayground when the compilation was awarded a Double Platinum from album sales and caught music critics attention when the compilation album won The Best English Album at the Anugerah Industri Muzik in 1997. To topped a successful year for nicestupidplayground, Bedroom Window was handpicked in Hong Kong by Holywood movie producer Wayne Wang, to be included as a soundtrack to the movie titled The Chinese Box which starred Jeremy Irons and Gong Li.

Dubbed as Sarawaks best kept secret, nicestupidplayground success follows with a full length album deal offered by Positive Tone. In 1999, they started working on their new album and by December 1999, a new first single stereogirl was released and immediately topped several local chart show.

The album also received good reviews from music critics everywhere but unfortunately the album sales are not too convincing. Nicestupidplayground parted with Positive Tone in 2003 due to a change of management. They did get an offer to record a full length Malay album but were not keen to persue the project. However, nicestupidplayground keep on performing at numerous shows both in East Malaysia and the Peninsular during their quiet period.

They keep on writing new songs and hoping somewhere, somehow there will be an offer a deal by any label or perhaps a potential investor who are willing to invest.

All the new songs were recorded between May October 2005 at Zanzibar Media in Kuching, Sarawak.
