Hunter Darby (bass, vocals) and Jennings Crawford (guitar, vocals) met at a Ft. Worth high school and began playing together. The Wannabes coalesced at Texas Christian, but present guitarist Kevin Carney and drummer Thad Swiderski joined later. The band then began to hone their sound, an early Replacements-inspired fuzz-rock. After a ten-song cassette (Lucky Pierre), the band released the "Dead True" single in 1992 and later their debut album for national release, Mod Flower Cake (1994), for DejaDisc.
