Jeremy Archer, recording as "discussed", has had an obsession with Rock Music since 1975, when he attended a Led Zeppelin concert in the womb. From that evening onward, as family history would have it, he would kick most vigorously whevever Zeppelin was playing on the turntable. He also enjoyed Aerosmith, Blackmore's Rainbow, Supertramp, and Deep Purple.
His father played in a garage band until Jeremy was a pre-teen, and instilled in him a deep reverance for all things Rock. They would put a Cars album on the Hi-Fi, and father would expound on the virtues of simple, catchy, raw music. Other topics of instruction included the importance of Music Theory, "Knowing the Rules Before You Break Them", and the creation of mood through arrangement and instrumentation.
Jeremy's own musical experience began at 12 years old with the Trumpet in his public school music program, and continued at 17 with the Guitar (Acoustic/Electric) and Multi-Track Recording. When he was approached by a couple of guys in the high school marching band to play Bass is a cover band they were trying to assemble, Jeremy managed to finangle a Fender Squire P-Bass for his 18th birthday.
Since then, Jeremy has played a thousand shows with a hundred bangs you've never heard of- all the while pursuing his love of "Bedroom Recording." In 1997, he coined the name, "discussed," and applied it to these recordings.
"discussed" grew out of Jeremy's love for B-Sides and avante garde post-anything Rock. When his last band in Dallas went defunct and he moved to Seattle, WA, Jeremy decided to make a go at his "side" project. The first logical step was to home record an album and develop a more concrete sound for "discussed". That being done, he has moved on to working up a live set he can perform solo, and looks to begin booking this summer for some late summer/early fall dates in the Seattle/Portland Area…
