BackgroundEdit

After playing several gigs Augie March signed with Ra Records (a RooArt subsidiary) distributed by BMG.[1] The group's first extended play, Thanks for the Memes, was produced by Victor Van Vugt[2] and released in early 1998. Despite positive reviews it received little radio airplay.[1]

Their drummer David Williams told Daniel Zugna of Beat magazine in March 2007 that he was surprised the band had been able to find a producer considering the obscure music on the EP, "We were these young punks who thought doing eight-minute songs was really hip and cool, and intellectual."[3]
