The band was formed by Dave Wilde (former member and writer with Smoove & Turrell) and Chris Jelly, with Dan Brady joining shortly after.

Emrys Baird reviewed 'King Bee' (the album) on the Blues and Soul website, stating: "This much heralded debut album should remain a true testament to their musical prowess. This engrossing Geordie outfit play with passion encompassing Jazz, Funk and smoking grooves which are stamped all over this certified classic."
