Originally called Meow, the band released the six-song EP I Ruv Me Too on the independent record label Twist Like This in 1995. They later adopted the Maow spelling, and released their full-length album 11 June 1996 The Unforgiving Sounds of Maow on Mint Records.
Case later went on to a solo career as an alternative country star and sometime vocalist with Canadian power pop ensemble The New Pornographers. Black currently plays with the indie rock band The Gay.
