After Roger Miller broke up the seminal post-punk group Mission of Burma due to his tinnitus, he co-formed Birdsongs of the Mesozoic to perform quieter music. Initial personnel were Roger Miller (piano), Martin Swope (guitar), Erik Lindgren (keyboards) and Rick Scott (keyboards); all personnel doubled on various percussion instruments.
Faultline was the first Birdsongs of the Mesozoic album to be released following the departure of founding member and painist Roger Miller. They expanded briefly to a 5 piece featuring 2 saxophonists, one of whom, Ken Field, is still playing with them today. On this album their style also evolved, with large chunks of it recalling the formal structures of Art Zoyd. The revised line up gave BOTM a more varied sonic pallette, although their characteristic influences (minimalism, chamber rock, contemporary avant garde and ambient) remain essentially the same
