Pond In-depth Biography

High school buddies Chris Brady} and Charlie Campbell} relocated from their hometown of Juneau, AK, to Portland, OR, in 1989. Two years later, they recruited drummer Dave Triebwasser} (ex-Thrillhammer}) and formed Pond. They were quickly signed to Sub Pop}, and their eponymous 1993 debut album fit nicely into the Pacific Northwest grunge movement that was dominating popular music. But with their short hair and earnest songs, Pond} never quite fit into the grunge scene and they struggled to gain notoriety outside of Portland and Seattle, where they had in fact become quite popular. Their second Sub Pop} album, 1995's The Practice of Joy Before Death}, brought a darker sound, but not a wider audience. Despite their limited fan base, critical acclaim was building, and eventually Pond} would become one of many up-and-coming bands to sign to a major label. That label was Sony}'s WORK Group}, and Pond}'s fantastic major debut Rock Collection} appeared in 1997 to much critical praise but a collective yawn from consumers. Their single, "Spokes,"} did not garner consistent radio play outside of the Northwest, and Rock Collection} disappeared from the commercial radar soon after its release. Pond} parted ways with Sony} in early 1998 and was rumored to be working on a new album. But by late 1998, Pond}'s members had moved on to different interests, making a new Pond} album unlikely to happen in the future. ~ Scott Sepich, All Music Guide
