Formed in Louisville, KY from the ashes of local legends Cinderblock in the early 1990s – and boasting an ever-revolving line-up for its first few years – Evergreen solidified in 1993 when Britt Walford (Slint, The Breeders, The For Carnation, Watter) joined on drums, and vocalist/guitarist Sean McLoughlin settled as the band's enigmatic frontman. A tight mix of percussive guitars, strolling, funky bass and relentlessly catchy drum beats escalated McLoughlin's drunken vocal sways to immeasurable heights. Equally inspired by Fugazi, Television and The Stooges, Evergreen was a breath of fresh air that only Louisville folks were really ready to breathe at the time.
