Korby Lenker was born to a mortician dad and a school marm in small-town southern Idaho. He grew up along the Snake River, in the shadow of the ramp where Evil Knievel jumped the canyon, almost. In high school, he fronted the alt.rock band, Clockwork Orange. They played Cure covers, some Love and Rockets, mostly at Mormon Stake dances. He graduated after a bit and made for the West Coast. Nirvana was on the radio a lot then.
