The band's music consisted of a hard-edged progressive rock sound that was highly unique and unconventional for the time, yet the songwriting was cleverly arranged and regarded favourably by radio stations. The music prominently featured the sounds of Chapman Stick, saxophone and trumpet arranged alongside hard rock guitar and vocal raps. A recording contract with Liquid Records and national record distribution through Page Publications gave the band enough exposure to support 6 National Tours with opening spots for I Mother Earth, The Tea Party and Our Lady Peace as well as performing with other Canadian bands of that era. In 1997 the band signed a distribution deal with EMI.
