An American team created from fellow students of the University of Illinois on the wreckage of the former Seven Seas group at the initiative of David Wright, who played any wind instruments and became the inspiration for this project.

They even wanted to run old films on a slide projector - "Monster Bride", for example, was influenced by "Bride Of Frankenstein", and at the performances they played the film at the moment when the "20th Century Fox" theme was played. The performances were so good that they were able to sign a contract with Brunswick Records. The musicians existed as a group for only a year or a year and a half, and without having time to play at least one concert on their album,
