After a number of local releases including their first demo tape Sweat A River, Live No Lies and two independent albums Listening Game and Quick they signed to Epic/Immortal Records and released their first major record, Tin Cans With Strings To You.

Their fourth album, Water & Solutions, was released in 1998 and thanks to the single "Mother Mary" they attracted a cult following. The more melodic sound showcased on this album is increasingly cited as an influence on present–day emo rock bands by the rock press, ie: Thursday, Biffy Clyro, Jimmy Eat World. Certainly it was a departure from their earlier, much more hardcore sound (although it is still far from the emo–pop that it would quickly come to inspire).
