It aired immediately after the show’s seventh episode of season 4, “Superfriends”, which was based on the song’s lyrics. Schneider then spent two weeks in Athens, Georgia recording music and spending time with his childhood friends Will Cullen Hart, Bill Doss and Jeff Mangum. The earliest incarnation of the band began to form in 1992 upon Schneider’s return to Denver, first between Schneider and Parfitt, both of whom played guitar. Several conflicts would lead Parfitt to leave the band in early 1994. Now with a full-length LP to support, the band began touring again. Eric Allen, whom the band had previously auditioned as a guitarist after the departure of Chris Parfitt, joined the band as a much welcomed permanent bassist.
