Albums

1994's album Churn, a self-produced independent release garnered the band airplay on an FM rock station in Orlando, Florida for the future hit single "Cumbersome."

The band signed with Mammoth and rerecorded the songs on "Churn," plus two new ones, to create the commercially successful "American Standard."
