The Presidents of the United States of America were an Seattle threesome – Christopher Ballew, Jason Finn and Dave Dederer (Andrew McKeag replaced Dave in 2005) who formed in 1993. The Presidents of the United States of America were one of the coolest bands on the planet in their hey day ! I think their first album was the best but all their albums have something special. PUSA band members have each pursued their own side projects and those are well worth exploring as well. PUSA arose out of Grunge scene and ironically, were a wonderful antidote to Grunge.
One of my favourite bands from the early-mid 90’s was the Crash Test Dummies. There was so much to like about this unique Canadian rock band !
Phish is an interesting American rock band who started in 1983, who specialise in improvisation and extended jams. Anyone who likes bands like The Grateful Dead, Rush, Jefferson Airplane/Starship, Uriah Heap, John Lawton Band and similar bands of that era, will find their blend of psychedelic rock, experimentation, fusion, funk and Zappa-ish like extended melodies, very rewarding.
Enjoy ! 😉
And listen to this from tribute band Jazz is Phish.
Chris Cornell’s last Twitter post. To Rock City it is, with the rest of the Grunge League.
