“When I came to San Diego in ’89, I played at the old Casbah with my punk band Big Tension,” says Matt Parker, who later played guitar in the five-piece Americana band Bartender’s Bible

An EP was released in 2004, and former Jejune singer Arabella Harrison and Pall Jenkins (Three Mile Pilot, Black Heart Procession) appear on the band's self-titled album released in 2007.

In 2010, Parker bought a neighborhood bar called Nancy’s Pub and renamed it the Black Cat Bar.
