The band saw many lineups along the way, as bands that stay together for over ten years will, but there were several key members that helped define the music this band created. Ted Silence remained the drummer for most of the band's life, although Marshall L. (Eco Guerrillas) also played and recorded with the band at the end of its life. Steve R. (guitar, shown in photo on right) was the main guitarist for many years, bringing his unique feedback-y sound to the first few releases, while Joel S. gave the band a cleaner, and more consistent guitar sound for the last several years of the band. Loren, Adam, Steve Bear, Jay K., Dennis M. (Expatriate), Jodi S., and even a couple of others added their talents and sounds along the way. In all, the band was never fully about the sound, although they enjoyed the music they created. They were also about the message, and the people they met all across the country and continent, along the way. They were good, maybe not great, but definitely a band to see live!
