By 1998, Jim needed new younger blood to keep the vaguely vampiric beast of SHOTWELL alive and he found help with his friend Iggy Scam and roommate/stuntman Carl.

Carl Rice, a daredevil of some reknown attempted to pick up the bassist role, but was soon distracted by various other personal activities including his whitewater river rafting fetish, stuntman school and tending his gigantic penile shaft.
After stints with Iggy and Ivy of the band and city Miami behind the drum kit, Jim finally settled on a new road worthy crew for 1999
still finds ways to rock even after pretty much abandoning the lame bar
circuit and sucking up to the local SF night clubs. The group began a
spate of street shows in late 98, and followed through several times in
1999 with these democratically organized and efficient blasts of urban
noise. By 2000 the band is well satiated by playing SF's Mission Records
and the occasional sporadic street shows at 16th st. Bart and other
locations. I wasn't at most of these occasions so suffice to say it is
much better documented by Iggy in the booklet that comes with the new LP
