Although credited as such on releases, neither Ron nor Brett's last name is Eriksen, and despite common belief to the contrary they aren't brothers.

Started out as Tracer and released a demo under that name, with Spider on vocals. Tracer broke up because they couldn't find a full-time singer. They then restarted after Brett began jamming with them, and Ron Daniel started singing.
