Early years: Seattle
They relocated to Seattle in 1990, where they met drummer Michael Dahlquist. During a radio interview on WNUR at Northwestern University Steve Albini called in as he had attended Hellgate High School the same high school as Phelps, Midyett, and Cohen. This connection led to Albini recording the band's album "In the West" Phelps left the band in 1994 due to mental health issues and the rigors of touring.
