Formed in 1989 by Eric Stevenson and Jonah Jenkins. Eric had played in the Boston area thrash metal band FORMICIDE. Jonah was big fan, and had met them while working with friends on a local fanzine, LOOK AGAIN. Eric recruited his brother Kevin, and bass player Ray Costa, both original members of Formicide . Early practies and song writing resulted in many 4-track recordings...but the band's first studio recording took place in 1989, with Bruce Bennett, at Kashmir Studio, in Wilmington, MA. This first recording resulted in the 1990 eponymous 4 song cassette.
