Upon their formation in 1989, the Thomas Jefferson Slave Apartments immediately self-released a series of 7″s to their surroundings of Columbus, OH. With their array of noise-laced punk riffs, the four-piece of Ron House (vocals), Bob Petric (guitar), Ted Hattemer (drums), and Craig Dunson would eventually release their first full-album, entitled Bait and Switch, through Onion/American Records in 1995. After Anyway Records put out their follow-up record Straight to Video two years later, Haynes Boys bassist Phil Parks would fill in on the four-string as the Thomas Jefferson Slave Apartments hit the road with Guided By Voices in 1997.
