The lineup included Keeley Davis on lead guitar and vocals, Jason Wood on Bass and Vocals, Jonathan Fuller on Rhythm guitar and backup vocals, and Cornbread Compton on drums. In early recordings Wood served as primary lead vocalist, but later in their career the duties of lead singer switched to Davis.
