Bassist Beez replaced Woodall for the ten-inch At Marineland, isssued the following year, while Bryce Dunn assumed Preminger's drumming duties for the 1992 LP Atlanta Whiskey Flats. In the Hall of Fame appeared a year later, and in 1994 the Smugglers issued a series of singles including "Tattoo Dave," "Gotta Gotta Gotta" and "Party...Party...Party...Pooper!" before closing out the year with the full-length Wet Pants Club. More singles including "Whiplash!" and "Senor Pantsdown" further expanded the group's prolific catalog, while the 1996 album Selling the Sizzle was issued as a joint release between Canadian indie Mint and its American counterpart Lookout. ~ Jason Ankeny, All Music Guide
