Crunch rock-band Varnaline (rhymes with “gas”) may be the alter superego of guitarist/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Anders Parker. Surviving in NEW YORK, Parker, who was simply a contributing person in the indie rock and roll group Space Needle, released his 4-monitor demos beneath the name Varnaline in 1996, contacting the album Guy of Sin. Indie label No Hour distributed it together with his 1997 EP A GO and a Beverage, both which display the vocalist/songwriter’s gritty punch and tough credibility. Teaming up along with his sibling, bassist John Parker, and Space Needle’s Jud Ehrbar on drums and keyboards, the music group released a self-titled full-length record in 1997. Released the next calendar year, their third full-length record Sweet Life discovered the music group writing even more melodic and haunting music, still keeping the large power that that they had become known for. The unlucky dissolution of No Hour Records still left the band’s position in limbo, as well as the music group was no more performing jointly; Parker, however, continuing to record. Beneath the Varnaline moniker, he released Songs within a Northern Essential on Artemis Information in summer months 2001.
