Other Info - The band got together in John Squire's back garden. Squire was working with the two ex-verve Simons on the premise of a new project (after John Squire's famous Skunk Works ad). Although material was written nothing ever came out of the collaboration and John Squire went on to go solo and the others went on to form The Shining.

They enjoyed a small following for a while but then Simon Tong famously left in 2003 to fill the void in Blur that Graham Coxon left when he left the band in Summer 2002.
