About the band:
Seaweed is an American band from Tacoma, Washington who were active throughout the 1990s. Their style of music is a combination of punk rock and grunge, mostly due to its ‘dirty’ sound.
In their early days, Seaweed was signed to Washington’s Sub Pop, but later released albums on Hollywood Records and Merge Records. Seaweed’s contemporaries during the time of their existence included Mudhoney, Samiam, Jawbreaker and tourmates Superchunk and Quicksand. Their song “Kid Candy” was featured as a music video in an episode of Beavis and Butt-head.
The band toured extensively in the United States with Green Day, Superchunk and Bad Religion as well as overseas, including shows in Brazil with Garage Fuzz. They were well known for their cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Go Your Own Way”, which appeared in the movie Clerks. In 2006, their song “Losing Skin” appeared on the soundtrack for the video game NHL 2K7.
On May 15, 2007, the band announced, via MySpace, that they had reformed and were writing a new album, tentatively titled ‘Small Engine Repair’. They also announced several live dates. They did release a 7 inch single in 2011 on the punk record label No Idea, titled “Service Deck” / “The Weight”.
