Snailhouse was the lo-fi solo project of Wooden Stars singer/guitarist Mike Feuerstack. Beginning his musical career during the late '80s with the Moncton, New Brunswick-based punk combo the Underdogs upon relocating to Ottawa, Ontario, Feuerstack began writing and recording as Snailhouse in 1990, putting the project on hold with the formation of the Wooden Stars three years later. Both the Wooden Stars' self-titled debut and the first Snailhouse release, Fine, appeared in 1995; a year later, Feuerstack issued a Snailhouse single, "Plans," on Julie Doiron's Sappy label. The Radio Dances appeared in 1998, and the following year the Wooden Stars backed Doiron for a full-length LP, which earned a Canadian Juno Award for Best Alternative Album. Fine was reissued on the Grand Theft Autumn label in the spring of 2000.
