Their influences are summed-up to Curtis Blow, Rick James, Michalis Karanassidis, (the early) John Zorn and the newcomers Are Weapons and Very Very (Very I told U) Unlimited.
Tziritas takes part in various projects (Archery Target / Dexamenoplio) and Papassimakopoulos is lead vocalist to the band Stereo Shortcuts, while both were members of the legendary band Kopsokefaloi. They also hold the two 3rds of responsibility for the band Sotto.
