They describe their heavily art-damaged and theatrical style as "Brechtian punk cabaret", a phrase invented by Palmer because she was "terrified" that the press would invent a name that "would involve the word 'gothic'," and are part of an underground dark cabaret movement that started gaining momentum in the early 1990s.

I started making music at the age of 11. It sucked a lot. After 5 years of practice it only sucks a little. That's improvement. I have released four albums in total since 2005. The latest one was my album for the RPM Challenge 2008. I would like to achieve mild internet fame but I'm happy with the 8 listeners I currently have(as of 10:02 March 21, 2008).
