The two original members "Dean" and "Darren" formed the band one cold Autumn night after one to many glasses of chardonnay in their favourite drinking establishment in the town.

The guys recruited drummer Phil and played their very first gig the same week to rave reviews.

The band gigged all over the province before heading into the studio in the Spring of 2008 to record their debut EP "Happy Daze" The tracks were recorded at Start Together Studios by producers Ben McAuley and Barret Lahey. After touring to promote the EP Phil decided to leave the band that summer citing musical differences as the reason. The guys then brought in flame haired raven Emma Picken to play bass and later also completed the line up with Paul McCann on drums. The band took a short break from playing live to write new material but returned early in 2009 to showcase it by playing live anywhere and everywhere. They headed back into the studio in November to record a new Demo containing the tracks "The Kamikaze Kid, "Down in the Pits" and "The search" This time the tracks were recorded by Frankie McClay at Einstein Studios in Antrim The title track had it's debut play on Radio ones BBC Introducing program on November 12th
