Turner, a member of legendary Australian act, Magic Dirt, has produced for other local acts Riff Random and theredsunband.Tim Whitten - who has worked previously with The Clouds, Underground Lovers and more recently, Gaslight Radio and 78 Saab - mixed the album.

In 2005, their first two albums were re-released as deluxe editions. The "Hope Springs" deluxe edition also features the sought-after debut EP in full .

In 2008, Matt Davis formed a side project, Bombazine Black, which also featured Danny Tulen on drums.
