The duo’s debut EP, The Photobooth, made an appearance on North Part ’82, the label associated with Chicago’s Wise Pub (where Shively is usually a resident DJ), and it instantly produced waves among neo-disco followers and DJs. The duo’s self-titled debut full-length made an appearance shortly after around the Nite Owl Diner.
