Bandmates Kirk Verhey (vocals), Dave Hillis (electric guitar), Vern Light (bass), and David Kopler (drums — he’d changed Shane White following the initial LP) seemed to shed interest following the second option LP and split up, but Hillis continued to try out a major component in the next rise of alternate rock, because of executive credits for famous brands Alice in Stores, the Afghan Whigs, and Pearl Jam.
