Minus The BearWhen the members of Minus the Bear first convened in a dingy practice space in 2001, there were few expectations for the project other than providing a reason for the five drinking buddies to hang out and write pop songs. The guys in Minus the Bear seemed to take pleasure in writing songs that were the antithesis to the ‘90s heavy-handed big-riff gloom that had controlled Seattle for the previous few years.
The American indie-rock outfit were founded in 2001 featuring current and former members of Botch, Kill Sadie, and Sharks Keep Moving.Their debut EP, This Is What I Know About Being Gigantic, with it’s nimble guitar work, observational lyrics, complex hooks, and four-on-the-floor dance beats, proved to be a breath of fresh air in a city that lived under a bank of black clouds nine months out of the year.
