The group played together for the first time in 2017, after nearly 10 years of working together across continents.
Their 2012 debut album Grief Proof Pauper
was the culmination of 4 years of jamming, with the finishing touches applied from multiple continents after economic chaos and emigration got in the way.
For their 2014 album Departures
, all music was improvised and recorded in Ireland on 2nd March 2013.
From 2015 the group focused on releasing singles. 2015's Fishbowl
was augmented with Dexter Gordon's timeless words, Noam Chomsky performed vocals on 2016's Doing Great
while confirming that it "sounds fine",
and the 2016 instrumental Retain
was followed in 2017 by the more relaxed Reprise for Tidal Swarm
In 2018 the group released 3 albums and a single to celebrate a decade of fun - a few tunes, some chillout and a bag of madness.
The group refined their production for the 2020 album Six
, and in 2021 nailed the meditaton-hiphop-punk-hillbilly-rock-jazz genre with the release of Vile Circus Body Scan
