Formed in 1981 in Marietta, GA, and released their first EP on Atlanta’s DB Records (Love Tractor, Pylon, The Swimming Pool Q’s).

Named after the 1943 memoir, which would later be made into an acclaimed film.

Four of their five studio releases were produced by Don Dixon (R.E.M., The Smithereens, Chris Stamey).

Played Athfest (which supports music and education in Athens, GA) in 2011 to celebrate their 30th anniversary as a band.
