Indie rock clothing Dryer shaped in 1992 in Saratoga Springs, NY, quickly learning to be a staple of the faculty radio and membership circuit. Led by co-songwriters Rachael Weekend (vocals/bass) and Bob Carlton (vocals/electric guitar), Dryer produced their debut on Color Chip Records using the 7″ one “letterbox,” presenting their melodic co-ed indie audio. After bicycling through several drummers, they arrived on a good lineup with Joel Lilley behind the package and documented their 1st full-length, 1996’s Sunday in Vain. Through the entire remainder from the ’90s, they toured seriously, recording for several different labels as well as drawing some curiosity from Atlantic, for whom they documented a demonstration. By 2002, nevertheless, the group got disbanded and would stay dormant for another eight years. To market the 2010 launch of the career-spanning compilation from Fake Section Records known as Strut and Perspiration, Dryer reunited to get a one-off hometown gig. The display was such successful that they started performing again frequently over another several years, ultimately getting on second guitarist Brian Akey (the Winterpills) in 2014.
