The group were first signed to Crypt Records in 1996, releasing ‘Deal Me In’ (1997) and ‘Cross & the Switchblade’ (1999) to critical acclaim. In 2000, they moved to the revered Sympathy For The Record Industry imprint for the release of ‘Fuck All Y’All’, and received further exposure through their similar approach to their then label-mates, The White Stripes.
The group disbanded in 2003 as Potter formed the funk rock band Detroit City Council. Tom Potter started his new band, the CHROME SPIDERS, in 2007.
Potter also did time in the Dirtbombs appearing on their seminal “Ultraglide In Black” and the not as necessary “Dangerous Magickal Noise”. He was also in Seger Liberation Army. Bantam Rooster was mentioned (and Potter an unnamed character in Elmore Leonard’s novel “Mr. Paradise”).
