Minneapolis, Minnesota based trio which consisted of Jared Aos, Gene Tangren and a rotating line-up of drummers. They recorded three full-lengths for AmRep, but never got much commerical attention and broke up in the mid 90s. Members were later involved in another AmRep act called Silver Salute, as well as non-AmRep-associated band Grackle.
