English alternative group comprised of singer-songwriter Toni Halliday and guitarist/producer/everything else Dean Garcia. Their music is best categorized as {{Shoegazing}}; their best-known song is likely "Chinese Burn" from their 1998 album ''Come Clean'', which was prominently featured in the ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' episode "Bad Girls" and used as the intro music for the Season 3 DVD menus. Active from 1991 to 1994, and again from 1996 to 2005.

Both Halliday and Garcia have since formed new bands, Chatelaine and SPC ECO, respectively.
