The band first hit the airwaves in 1983 with single "Where's Bula" after winning the Chez 106 Sharechez '83 Homegrown contest in Ottawa, resulting in an award winning video for this single and the recording of a five track EP, Ottava Rima, on independent label Apprentice Records in 1985. This EP, sponsored by Allan White, the owner of the production company responsible for the "Where's Bula" video, was sent to producer Rupert Hine by Chez 106 music director Greg Torrington and the EP's two most popular tracks, "Where's Bula" and "Kiss You (When It's Dangerous)" were re-recorded for Almacantar, which was released the following year on Polydor. After a few radio hits from this album, the band released a third album, Big Houses, on ATCO. But after this release, the band's new label filed for bankruptsy and the band eventually faded into Canadian pop rock history.
