Biography

Tulsa, Oklahoma was an old oil money town with lots of green trees, rednecks, country music and classic rock. It was a fairly boring place to live as a kid, and left Caleb Pate nothing to do but lose himself in nature, skateboarding and, luckily, learning about music until he moved to Sacramento in his teens.

Meanwhile, on a journey that took in over 30 destinations from the Arizonan deserts, to the Washington rainforest and Oregon coastline , the nomadic Nephi Evans was fast closing on the key destination of California; where, out of a chance meeting on a rafting trip in Sacramento, the friendship that would eventually become Seventeen Evergreen was borne.

Whilst Sacramento was good for finding gigs, learning the art of slacking and drinking coffee, Caleb felt it lacked the black cultural references familiar to his Tulsa youth. In particular, there was none of the electro and hip/hop that went with Tulsa turf, instead the mainly white influences seemed artistically stifling for the music he wanted to realise. A little disillusioned, Caleb gave Berkeley a try, but any scholastic swooning soon waned as his passion for music once again proved all too consuming. San Francisco, with its magical weather, lush trees and Pacific shores, became his new home and, except for a bittersweet brief affair with London, has remained so ever since.

    There's a dubstep remix of 'Ensoniq' on a compilation called 'Steppas' Delight', hence the "dubstep" tag. And it's just a fucking tag.

    I love that lunar one album. so great. i know people are bummed that they didn't go much further but hey... at least they didn't do what other bands do... put out a great album, then put out a couple of ok ones then... a really bad one. some bands should only put out one album. i say this with ALL due respect. Plus hey... now one knows what happened to Calib.. maybe he got a got job or something. Lunar One is a great obscure album that I hope people stumble upon for years to come.

    So, what happened? An enormously promising debut and then nothing?
