In 1982, the band relocated to Oakland, and in 1984 to Los Angeles, adding Joe Moe, Michael Webster and Richard Crawford to the roster. Alumni include Everett Shock, Lynn Murdock, Erling Wold & Mark Crawford (who along with Richard Crawford were part of the seminal Oakland band Name), and Ed Summerfield, Mark Nemoyten and Nik Phelps.

Mr. Woodbury played bass, sang and co-wrote most of the songs on the self-titled LP.

Off-shoots included the short-lived Pulu & Ingrid and King Pez.
