The duo released their first tape, Buck Naked, in 1989 in their basement, which incorporated humor and guitar riffs but found no success. In 1991, they recorded The Yellow Tape, a demo of original music featuring the final lineup of the group. The tape was only sold at Barenaked Ladies concerts and it became the first independent release by any Canadian band to achieve Platinum status in that country.
