Wow, I had no idea so many people outside New Orleans knew about this band. I saw them in '97 when they were an instrumental post-rock band with a spy-krautrock-electronic sound. (With a female member on synths.) And again in '04 when they totally changed to a Blondie-ish new wave pop sound after adding a (blonde) female singer and losing the (brunette) female synth player. (Interestingly, the pre-sellout show drew a larger crowd than the post-sellout show. There were probably 10 people at the latter.) In '97 their "Freerider Pants" 7" got lots of play on Tulane's radio station.
