Biography

The Origin hails from San Diego, California, and was formed in the mid to late 80s by Gary Jules and Michael Andrews. Their music is reminiscent of The Church, Echo & The Bunnymen, and Crowded House, to name a few.

Gary Jules left the band and Michael Andrews was left as songwriter and frontman for the band when they signed with Virgin Records which released their self-titled debut album in 1990.

    It is too bad that they only did two albums.

    This is one of the most under rated bands of all time. I got to see them live in the early 90s when they open for Midnight Oil. Great show =)
