Biography

Unionsuit was a somewhat functional group, from roughly the Winter of 1996 through Spring of 1998. The core members were Michael Poorman (drums - Age of Reason, Hot Rod Circuit, etc), Aaron Turner (guitar - Isis, Old Man Gloom, Lotus Eaters, etc), and Matt Firestone (vocals - Yarn Spinner, Fireman, Earth Crisis roadie, and Punisher of Haunted Cars). There were various bass players along the way (including Josh English of Six Going on Seven, and briefly Cast Iron Hike), but none of them ultimately stayed the course for the life span of the band, brief though it was. Also occasional vocal and performance appearances were made by Chris Mereschuck, previously of Age of Reason and later on of Isis, though in these appearances Mereschuck was often unrecognizably costumed.

A 5 song demo was recorded by Brian McTernan in 1996 and included a guest vocal spot by super hero Jacob Bannon (Converge). This was technically a Hydra Head release, but of the various different versions “released” (3 covers in all, totaling about 600-700 copies) many were done by the band themselves in small batches. The following year Unionsuit recorded (again with McTernan) a 3 song 7” entitled “Accidents Happened, which proved to be the bands final recording. This 7” was released in an edition of 1000 copies courtesy of the Second Nature Recordings company, 100 or so of which were pressed on white vinyl.

    отчего-то повеселила фраза "гитарист и вокалист довольно известной пост-метал команды Isis" ) по сабжу - отличная команда.
