Critics have described their sound as raw 1970s AC/DC style rock and roll mixed with Iggy Pop vocals and bluesy punk. They have opened for artists including Mojo Nixon, Reverend Horton Heat, and Drive-By Truckers as well as appearing at the Emissions from the Monolith festivals. Their song "Hotwire", from their 2002 album Thunder Boogie, was included in the video game Tony Hawk's Underground.
Lamont broke up in 2007, with lead singer/guitarist Pete Knipfing playing in Mess with the Bull, a psychobilly/death metal band that includes members of Scissorfight. The band played a reunion show in October 2011.
