The band’s first album, Go To The Sugar Altar, was funded by Deal and released on her own label, Nice Records. After the release, the band toured the US and Europe, changing their guitarist to Todd Mund during the tour.

In February 1997, the band worked on their second album, Boom! Boom! Boom!. For the new album Nick Hook was replaced by Todd Johnson. The album was released in August 1997.
