Pope, Offer, and Van Der Volgen are also members of the similar band, !!!.
Their first album, S.T.R.E.E.T. D.A.D.
For their second album, Let Us Never Speak Of It Again, the group added vocals to their music, with Forbes singing lead while a drum machine filled in her usual role, assisted with Schnick on backing vocals.
Shortly after the release of their second album, it was announced that Pope would not be joining the band on tour, and instead would be concentrating on James Murphy's dance-punk band LCD Soundsystem.
It was then announced in September 2005 that a concert in New York might be their last show.
Molly Schnick is now a solo artist known as Jean on Jean.
She released her self-titled debut album in 2008 on Kanine Records.
The band has suggested that they do not know what the band name means, although this may be said humorously.
It may be a distortion, and past or past participle form of, the verb "outhear," which means, according to Wiktionary, "to hear more acutely than."
