Wookieback make short songs based around simple melodies matched with sci-fi lyrics.

Wookieback released three home-studio-recorded cassettes in the 1990s on Chattanooga-based Corner Room Recordings: cnrm006 - Proposed Moon Suit (1997) 15 songs // cnrm009 - Robots Be One Crazy Weasel (1998) 16 songs // cnrm014 - Let Me Tell You About This Machine EP (1999) 10 songs // They only performed at a handful of shows, playing with local favorites like Title One or Regal Beagles, and opening for touring bands Of Montreal, Elf Power, The Music Tapes, and The Danielson Famile. Wookieback's last show was in the summer of 1999. The "Let Me Tell You About This Machine" EP was re-released as one side of a 10" record in 2000 on Bedtime Records (a split vinyl with Orange Cake Mix). Since then, Matthew and Brandon have completed MFA degrees, and are teaching. Matthew and his family live in Virginia. Brandon and his wife spent a few years in the midwest, but have recently returned to Chattanooga–he records songs as Vest With Hood. John moved to California and has been releasing/performing music under the name Half-handed Cloud.
