Vocalist Eddie Argos (an ex-goth obsessed with Jonathan Richman and Vincent Van Gogh) had previously been in a band, The Art Goblins, in his hometown of Bournemouth. Their stage show would see him "playing a vacuum cleaner" and escaping from a sack. They sounded not unlike cult Glaswegians The Yummy Fur and had songs such as I Wanna Be Johnny Dean and Disco. Another 'project' was The Welsh Elephant, who penned the should-be-classic Fuck The MSP (which contains the catchy refrain "Nicky Wire can suck my cock!").

Having moved to London, UK and determined to be in another band, Argos found himself at a party in Mornington Crescent and set about hassling everyone there to join him. A webzine-editor and guitarist called Chris Chinchilla (a ska fanatic) thought this sounded like a good idea - after all, it was a good way to impress girls.
