Also featured on the album are three collaborations with Miriam Williamson of Jello Biafra-championed Sydney punk/dub/tribal group, Wrong Kind Of Stone Age, two of which found their way, in remixed form, on to early 90's releases by Sydney rave duo Itch-E and Scratch-E. Their ARIA award winning track, Sweetness and Light, began life as a Pelican Daughters track and features Miriam's distinctive vocal. After the demise of Silent Records, Pelican Daughters recorded one more album with Sheriff Lindo, 'Darkness Before Light', but this found no release at the time. They also appeared on a number of compilation releases by Silent Records and Halcyon Records. Andy Rantzen went on to co-found Sydney techno/rave outfit Itch-E and Scratch-E with Paul Mac.
The duo's first EP, Irritable, features a number of remixed Pelican Daughters tracks. Andy Rantzen continues to release material under his own name and with electro/rock duo Cherry2000. Justin Brandis collaborates with diverse singer-songwriters & is co-founder of DaylanMusic, providing soundtracks for short films & TV projects. In 2007, Sydney label 4-4-2 Music embarked on a project to rerelease the Pelican Daughters material, including Darkness Before Light, and other material from compilations. Subsequent rereleases will include solo and collaborative albums and eps from Andy Rantzen's back catalogue.
