US post-punk / post-rock legends!

Chris Brokaw was a founding member of Codeine, the band that kicked off the Slowcore scene in the late 80's. He left Codeine to form Come with Thalia Zedek. He now drums in The New Year, and plays guitar for Thurston Moore, Evan Dando and a wealth of other high achieving acts. His recent solo LP 'Incredible Love' is a genuine lost classic little known, but loved by everyone who owns it.

Geoff Farina is best known for his 12 years with Karate, a band whose early records were clearly influenced by Brokaw's Codeine. Farina's charismatic voice, and versatile guitar playing are also heard on a number of excellent solo albums, and as one-half of Secret Stars, the seminal early-90s duo that passed around home-made cassettes of songs now covered by the likes of Ida and Death Cab for Cutie. He now fronts Glorytellers.

Chris and Geoff met within the small Boston music scene, when Geoff used to go see Codeine and Come play. They once played in a band together called Back Knife Spot way back in 1988. They went on to record 'The Angel's Message to Me', their first studio collaboration as a duo and toured together in 2009. They released a second album, a limited edition tour CD 'The Boarder's Door' in conjunction with an extensive tour across Europe in late 2010.
