The year was 1998. Silica was formed from the ashes of the band Citizen’s of Okeyville. We were 15, just started playing our instruments and didn’t know what “good” was. We had fun. We had petty drama. We had a yamaha board and a tape deck.
in 1997, Josh and Brian talked about starting to play instruments and start a band. Josh wanted to play keys. Thankfully, he decided to play drums instead. Of all of us, he actually had talent at the time. John was talking with Steve and asked if we wanted to start a punk band, citing, “it’s punk, it doesn’t have to be good.
Turns out we didn’t really know what punk was or how to play it. After Steve left the band, John learned how to play bass and Dave joined in on keys. We got a second guitarist named Matt, however, he was absent for this recording.
John E: Bass, lead vocal on The one Josh R: Drums Dave A: Keys Brian W: Guitar, Lead vocal on The Three of Them and Misery.
