The trio went in a hiatus in 1996 after a long career where the band became hailed as one of the premier and innovative indie bands as well as briefly achieving mainstream success in the early 1990s.
As the group's lead vocalist and primary songwriter, Curt is the sole member of the original trio to have played in all of the band's incarnations since 1980.
The new lineup disbanded in 2002 after the departure of Duplantis.
They released a self-titled album in 2002 and toured the United States before going separate ways.
Curt then formed another band, Volcano, which only released one album, before he decided to focus on his solo career.
His first solo album Snow was released in October 2005.
Curt is the father of twins, and his son, Elmo, is also a guitar player, often playing with his father and uncle.
