Led by Daniel Smith, the band has gone under several guises starting with The Danielson Famile - the Von Traps of the underground when Daniel recorded to a four track with back-ups from his four siblings Andrew, David, Megan and Rachel - with additional help from friends Jason Faunce and Missy Forsyth, to be joined by Daniel's wife Elin for 'Fetch The Compass Kids'.

2001's 'Fetch The Compass Kids' was a collaboration between the Danielson Famile and Steve Albini, who slept on an air mattress in southern New Jersey for several nights just to complete the task.

This unlikely meeting of the minds produced a whirling dervish of an album, one that is both crisp and deep, with multi-colours and multi-Gospel-rhythms from the Smith family and friends on a gypsy-like parade.
