This indie power pop trio from Dublin, comprising Mark Greaney (guitar/vocals), Hilary Woods (bass) and Fergal Matthews (drums), received some extravagant praise from the UK music press before they had even released their debut single, November 1999's "October Swimmer". Some commentators even went so far as to suggest that the band was the most important Irish rock act to appear since U2. The band was formed in 1995 by Greaney and Matthews while they were attending Dublin's Belvedere College, with bass player Garvin Smith the first of several other members to pass through the early line-up. Their unusual name allegedly refers to a window made of 72 jam jars in the school's art department.
