A three-piece driven by David Mitchell's distinctive guitar style, they had broken up by the time their first and only EP, The Grotesque Singers, was released on Flying Nun.
Mitchell soon joined Goblin Mix, another band from the same group of friends, and later went on to international fame in in The 3Ds. A compilation CD, The Complete Goblin Mix and Exploding Budgies, was released by Flying Nun in 1991.

When he was in New Zealand in 1993 (making a film about the infamous "witch" Rosaleen Norton), writer and director Kenneth Anger became aware of Mitchell's song 'Kenneth Anger'. The story goes that Anger stormed up to the Flying Nun office and demanded to hear the song. On having it played to him, Anger declared he loved it and left a message on a copy of the band's CD: "Love the song. Lots of love, Kenneth Anger."
