Formed in 1993 by Chick Graning, Jud Ehrbar, and Joyce Raskin. The trio soon had a major label bidding war. They toured America, Europe, England, and Canada, with much acclaim for their live shows. Their Red Ep was distributed worldwide, landing in the UK charts, with songs like "All Sideways" and "Days like this". In 1995, following a support tour with Hole in Europe and on the verge of seriously breaking it big with their debut album Deadsexy, Chick suffered a brain aneurysm and lapsed into a coma for several weeks.
