Hometown: Bloomington, IN (USA)


The band released Fate's Got A Driver in 1996, toured the US and Europe and took time out to record a new demo. After appearing at numerous major label events, the band were due to sign for Revolution Records, an imprint of Warner Music Group, but a signing freeze just before putting pen to paper thwarted them.

The band returned to the studio in 1998 to record their second album for Doghouse Records, The Moon My Saddle. After several line–up changes which saw Clay Snyder, Curtis Mead and Charlie Walker leave the band, the group promptly broke–up. Their third album, Exit 263, a collection of uncompleted songs, was released independently in 2000 through the band's management company.

The double CD retrospective, Five–Year Diary (which is also the name of a song from Fate's Got A Driver) was released independently in 2002. The album features live tracks and old demo recordings as well as tracks from compilations and hard to find releases.

The members are currently involved with many different musical projects in New York City, Los Angeles and Indianapolis. Curtis Mead and Charlie Walker play, together with former Brainiac bass player and video director Juan Monostereo and ex Bullet LaVolta drummer Philips, in Model/Actress, which released an EP in 2008.
