Theyreleased three full-length albums before disbanding in 2003, these albums included:1999's My Fruit PsychoBells...A SeedCombustible and 2001's Bath and Leaving Your Body Map. These last two albums were consideredcompanion albums. Theband had a consistent core membership, which consisted of Jason Byron, Greg Massi, and Toby Driver. Throughoutits career asort of "revolving door" of members and session musicians participated as needed.

maudlin's music, lyrics, and atmosphere dealt predominantly with the subject of astral projection. The band tried to find musicrather thancompose it. This was done through practicing astralprojection and lucid dreams, from which the band werepurportedly able to "bring back" pre-existing music from the astral plane (as statedby Toby Driver in the liner notes includedwith the reissued Bath and Leaving Your Body Map).

In late 2001, the band began working on a fourth studio album. During this time, the band lost several longtime members,changed labels,and ultimately renamed themselves to Kayo Dot. This fourth album was later released in 2003 as Kayo Dot'sChoirs of the Eye.
