8:02 PM

so i was at the bar last night and the dj was playing tons of 90s alt rock. then i was quite surprised to hear For Squirrels. it turned out one of the regular patrons was from jacksonville, fl and turned him onto what was once one of her favorite local bands. what makes it so surprising is that the band carries a tragic story that lead to only one album and a brief history. the florida foursome were signed by sony following a popular ep and recorded Example. one month before it's release the group was returning from a gig in new york and their van overturned, killing two members of the band and their manager. what remained was an incredibly promising major label debut that would understandably never see a proper follow-up. the remaining members formed the band Subrosa, which was far more edgier sounding than the REM-cloning pop that was For Squirrels.
