Treepeople was an alternative rock band from Boise, Idaho, although it spent most of its time and was officially based in Seattle, Washington. The band was composed of Pat Brown, Wayne Rhino Flower, Doug Martsch, and Scott Schmaljohn, many of them ex-members of the Boise punk band State of Confusion. The band gained local notoriety and success in the late 1980s and early 1990s, but after losing members to family complications and other projects, particularly Martsch to Built to Spill, the group disbanded in 1994, having released three albums and a handful of singles. Scott Schmaljohn later played in Stuntman, The Hand, and The Treatment. Schmaljohn also guested on Built to Spill’s latest release There Is No Enemy, playing on the song “Pat,” a tribute to Pat Brown.

Her first record, Wheel, (Simple Machines Records), scored rave fanzine reviews and hit the college radio airwaves, „…with a quiet, biting sense of stark reality. (Groundbelly)

Juliana’s Kill Rock Stars release, She’s Good People, is packed with charmingly peculiar stories recorded at the 1992 Riot Grrrl Convention. She wrote and produced Big Broad, a CD of 30 humorous gems with lush sound scores, and DreamCumGoDown, a mischievous documentary CD of sex truths and fantasies.

HELMET In the Meantime 7″ Vinyl Record AMREP 1992 Scale 47 PINK VINYL

Helmet appeared on the New York underground scene in 1989 after Hamilton had left Band of Susans. They were spotted by Tom Hazelmyer and signed to his Amphetamine Reptile Records label, releasing their debut 7 inch single, “Born Annoying” later that year. AmRep released their first album, Strap It On, in 1990.

Helmet was acclaimed as a “Thinking person’s heavy metal band.” Eschewing the traditional heavy metal image of long hair and black clothing, the band stood out with their preference for simple t-shirts, jeans, and sneakers, along with short haircuts. Their music is characterized by repetitive, syncopated, staccato guitar riffs, often in odd time signatures, and almost always in a minor key with drop-D or drop-C tuning. The guitar sound is heavily distorted and dissonant, with choruses that often involve guitar feedback waves.

Before Hamilton had settled on a name for the group, Peter Mengede’s then-girlfriend suggested the name “Helmut”. Opting for the Anglicized spelling, Hamilton thought Helmet “sounded like a cool name for a band.” . Other names considered were “Cry Ruth” and “Poly Orchids”, along with the more esoteric “Tuna Lorenzo” and “Froth Albumen”.
