According to legend, the three founding members of the band (Haager, Flesch und Nehen) were introduced to each other by Wim Wenders at a wedding in Chicago. They moved together to Berlin and spent most of 2006 and 2007 in the studio and eventually emerged with an EP and a full-length album. The EP was made available to download for free on their website and the album Sleeping English was released in October 2007 through Berlin-based label widerheim. They then found two more members to complete their live outfit and played their first show at the historic venue Schokoladen in Berlin in August 2007.

At the end of 2008, the project moved back to Brooklyn, NY and Sleeping English was re-released on May 26, 2009 via American indie label, Infinite Best, along with a new EP entitled Cycloptic Myopia. A song from the latter was first featured on NPR's Second Stage podcast in March, 2009. In late 2010, Haager moved the project once again, this time to San Francisco, California, where it turned again into a four-piece. After releasing another digital EP , the band dissolved in the spring of 2012. (en)
