Scott played bass, while Matt took on lead vocals and was convinced by Scott to also play guitar. The first drummer, Nelms Parker, was quickly replaced by Steve Pullman to round out the lineup that, for the next three years, would play small shows in Florida. Some time later, Greg Taylor joined as drums , who wrote about 4 songs, in which the Aesthetic Demos were created. After hearing the demos of what would be their first EP, Phillip Reardon lead vocals and Derek Bloom drums joined the band. However, Good was reluctant to take on both lead vocal and lead guitar duties.
