1. An indie band from Washington DC, Unrest formed in 1983 and were initially made up of Mark Robinson (lead guitar) and Phil Krauth (drums). In this form they experimented with a range of genres, and pinning them down was virtually impossible.

They didn’t gain a great deal of popularity until they were joined by Bridget Cross (bass) in 1990. With Bridget’s arrival their sound transformed into a more stable, brit-poppy one - they’re often described as being in the shoegazing genre thanks to their unconfrontational, repetitive music.

Gradually attaining minor success, Unrest’s most popular albums were probably Imperial F.F.R.R. and Perfect Teeth. Following these albums Unrest’s output slowly wound down, and they broke up in 1994.

Following the split, Mark and Bridget continuing to work together as Air Miami for a short while, and Phil went on to a solo career. Mark still releases solo projects, and runs the Teenbeat label.
