Founded in 2006 by Nils Ottensmeyer and Dennis 'Mel' Melster, they completed their self-titled debut in 2008 of which 500 vinyl copies were self-released. One of the copies made it into the hands of Will Carruthers of Spacemen 3, who subsequently passed it on to a friend at 8MM Musik. The band were signed shortly after.
An appearance at the UK's Dream Machine Festival in 2008 led to the track 'A God', from their debut, being included on the UK neo-psych compilation 'Open Your Mind', later pronounced DIY Compilation Of The Week by the BBC in 2009.
Their their first ever show in Berlin in 2009 impressed Anton Newcombe enough to offer to help with production, and, with his studio wizardry and the band's already stellar songwriting and musical talent, 'Narcotica' was recorded in under two weeks.
'Narcotica' will be released this November 16th in the US (distributed by Cargo/Red Eye). Live shows in the US early 2011. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qg2OZd7rPTc&feature=email
