Engine 88’s noisy pop recalls Pavement and Fugazi. Two Bay Region bands offered the employees for the group. Damon Real wood (acoustic guitar, vocals), David Hawkins (drums) and Eric Knight (bass) previously performed in the Smoking cigarettes Section, a soul-funk music group, while Tom Barnes (vocals, acoustic guitar) caused Sordid Laughter. The band started their very own label (Shut Up and Drive) in 1993 and released their 1st solitary, “Funny Car/Drowning.” The next single, “Container,” made an appearance on No Existence. Caroline released their debut recording, Clean Your Space, in middle-1995.
