Scarab / One True Thing
The band eventually recruited Lee Greenman on bass to replace their original bass player, who would play on a demo featuring songs such as Dearest, Bloom and Yeast. The last song would also be featured on the Motherbox comp "Diversified Chaos". Lee would be replaced with Antonio Garcia (aka Antonio Longo).
They would crossover from the hardcore scene to gather more mainstream interest in 1997 and 1998 by winning Best Local Band in the LI Voice paper and wound up bouncing around with deals from E.S.P management and Gotham entertainment. Their sound had evolved from their noisier beginnings and was becoming more commercial. They recorded an album with Gotham, but it never got released due to the label wanting them to sign with them to release a 2nd album with them as well.
Danny would leave the band in late 1999 and go on to form the band Redshift, and then later join Dearly Departed, play with The Eternity Code and join Steady As She Goes.
