In 1999, the Harrisburg, PA-based band the Stump Wizards asked Deniz Tek, former leader from the pioneering Australian punk band Radio Birdman, to create their third album, to become entitled Contains Lead. Tek recognized their invitation, even though tensions inside the Stump Wizards avoided their own record from developing, guitarist Jack port Chiara and drummer Clyde McGeary strike it off with Tek, and during downtime through the periods the three started working up tracks of their very own which blended components of punk, hard rock and roll, and power pop. The periods eventually yielded another record, which Tek, Chiara, and McGeary made a decision to release beneath the group name Deep Decrease. Following an progress one, the Deep Decrease album premiered in early 2000, as well as the group reassembled for a brief tour of European countries in the springtime of that season. In 2001, the group came back to the studio room to cut another album, basically entitled 2; this time around out, these were became a member of by another Radio Birdman alumnus, Rob Younger, who was simply asked by Tek to become listed on the group being a vocalist.
