After hooking up with Peek-a-Boo Records, Silver Scooter issued their debut seven-inch “Biting My Nails; ” the singles “Ball of Yarn” and “Cup & String” followed before they issued the full-length The Other Palm Springs in 1997. A split ten-inch with Cursive as well as a split seven-inch with Tiara followed in 1998 before the trio dropped their second LP, Orleans Parish, early the next year and Goodbye followed in fall 2000. Blue Law appeared in early 2001.
