The band at first was known as The Scuds, and their early work was influenced by electric rock. However, they sat round Tull's kitchen table every night and played acoustic country tunes, and soon decided that they enjoyed this style more. This culminated in the Scud Mountain Boys bringing the table to a concert and playing while sitting down, a move which was enthusiastically welcomed.
Pernice, the group's main songwriter, later went on to form the more pop/rock-influenced band The Pernice Brothers.
