Evan Sornstein, Jenny Liang Herrick and Alan Herrick are the three original members who also have been collaborating with other artists using the name Nux Vomica. Alan Herrick is also the owner of Auricular records; the label that released most of the N.V. works.

It was re-released as cd on Auricular Records on 2004.
