Anybody up for having the band, FLOATER, added to Friday's line-up? I don't even know if they're still together. Sort of like Pink Floyd meets Rage Against the Machine. Fast, political, but spacey. I think they hail from the Portland, Oregon area.

Biography by Jason Ankeny
Eugene, OR-based art-metal trio Floater was formed in 1993 by singer/bassist Robert Wynia and drummer Peter Cornett, who'd previously teamed in the group Henry's Child; recruiting guitarist David Amador, they quickly recorded a six-song demo that caught the attention of indie label Elemental, releasing their debut LP Sink in 1994. Glyph followed a year later, notching a major local hit with "The Sad Ballad of Danny Boy"; production issues delayed the release of Floater's third album 1998's Angels in the Flesh and Devils in the Bone, and a year later the group released a live record, The Great Release.
