Biography

There are now three bands known as Failure.

(1) Failure was an influential band (often also classified as and/or ) that was active from 1990 to 1997, during which they recorded and released three critically-acclaimed albums. They are often compared to other bands from that time that were similarly labeled as “”, such as Nirvana, Soundgarden, or Bush, but are distinguished by their meticulous attention to textural sonic detail, inventive use of guitar effects and signal processing, and the overall expansive sound design of their later albums. They reformed in 2013, and played their first show in sixteen years in February 2014. Although mainstream success narrowly eluded them, they still have many dedicated fans, many of whom are fellow musicians and peers within the music industry.

Failure was formed around 1990 consisting of band members Ken Andrews (vocals/guitars) and Greg Edwards (bass/guitar), with contributions by drummers Robert Gauss, John Dargahi, Kellii Scott and touring guitarist Troy Van Leeuwen. After poor success with their first album, Comfort, Ken Andrews decided to produce their next album, Magnified, himself. Their third album Fantastic Planet was widely considered their best but even though their single, Stuck On You, had some success, the band eventually split over creative differences and a growing drug problem within the band. In studio, most of the work was done by Ken Andrews (who would record vocals, guitar, and some bass) and Greg Edwards (who would record bass, some guitar, and drums).
