Amy and Al both independently moved to Melbourne around the mid to late 2000's. Since then, they've changed the direction of underground music and given definition to new sounds with bands like Total Control, Sleeper and Snake, The UV Race, Constant Mongrel, Terry, Dick Diver, Lower Plently, Eastlink, Straightjacket Nation, and Primo!, to name a few.
