Fang's first EP (Employee of the Month 1999) and the first album THE ORIGIN OF SPECIES (2000) contained the tracks Employee of the Month (bFM Top Ten No.1), Disphoria and a number of other student radio favorites. It was a lo-fi, hi - energy blast of quick fire songs, described by one reviewer as about technology, cool people and getting back to nature, tongues firmly planted in cheek. The original line up was Sonya Waters, Andrea Holmes and Ben Howe.
During 2001-2002 Fang set to work on their second album called SOMEWHERE OUT THERE . They also recruited guitarist Francis Hunt (The Stereo Bus, Sleepers Union and other bands) on guitar, who was eventually replaced by Steve Reay (The Subliminals), who played the guitar on Somewhere Out There. The album was released at the end of 2002 to excellent reviews. It was described variously as a departure and a daring imaginative and accomplished trip into other musical atmospheres or shiny and impressive. In the year following the release of the album Fang played numerous gigs around New Zealand with Bob Mould, the Chills, the Phoenix Foundation, Pine, Ghostplane, SJD and other shows.
On August the 2nd 2004 they released their third album SWIM UP STREAM
