Biography

Modern Memory is an American indie rock band based in Los Angeles. Formed in 2001 by Ann Arbor brothers William and Wayne Faler after the demise of their seminal Michigan math rock band Philo Beddow. After moving to Los Angeles and trying out a number of bassists they teamed up with Los Angeles bass player Tambi Haron, former bassist in Los Angeles band, Bulletpark. Tambi brought along good friend Carlos De La Garza (also a former member of Bulletpark) on drums to complete the Modern Memory line up, although at this point they went by the name Grand.

OVERVIEW
After only four shows they started recording their debut record only to realize after mixing it that they were less then pleased with the results. After playing more shows opening for bands like, Hot Hot Heat, American Analog Set, Radio 4, her Space Holiday, the Microphones, Moving Units, Crystal Skulls, Headphones (Ex- Pedro the Lion) and even a side stage appearance at the legendary Flaming Lips and Beck collaboration/tour at the Universal Amphitheatre they decided to re-record their debut record. Carlos De La Garza was replaced by Jeremiah James on the drums just prior to recording due to the fact that Carlos had become increasingly busy running his recording studio Music Friends and producing bands like GoGoGo Airheart and Lyra. After recording the entire record live to tape at the Distillery in Costa Mesa with Mike McHugh in four days they flew to Seattle to mix it at Hall of Justice Studios with Chris Walla, guitarist of Death Cab for Cutie and also producer of bands like Hot Hot Heat, the Decemberists, Travis Morrison (ex- The Dismemberment Plan), Postal Service and of course Death Cab For Cutie.
