    Their name was inspired by Farrell spotting an ad for fireworks in a porn magazine.
    AllMusic noted, ‘Farrell’s pretensions got out of hand at times, resulting in some ridiculously self-absorbed conceptual pieces.’
    Farrell and DiStefano announced plans for a 2013 reunion, which never took place.
    They contributed the song ‘Hard Charger’ to Howard Stern’s biographical film ‘Private Parts.’
    The video for their single ‘Pets’ was directed by Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris, who went on to make the film ‘Little Miss Sunshine.’
    Dave Navarro played on one track on their second album and was a ‘surprise guest’ at several concerts on the subsequent tour, foreshadowing the Jane’s Addiction reunion.
    They broke up when guitarist DiStefano was diagnosed with testicular cancer.
