The costumes changed over the years, but the polyphonic spree's message remained consistent, drawing comparisons to the flaming lips and the beach boys with a smidgen of lively godspell-like attitude thrown into the mix. The group put together a demo entitled the beginning stages of the polyphonic spree and distributed it to fans during a holiday performance; a dallas-based indie label, good records, later issued the release. The spree's two dozen members took the stage in flowing robes of snowy white, an appropriate backdrop for their happy and uplifting blend of pop, orchestral rock, and minimal touches of gospel.
