All My Friends Are Fish: The Downsiders

the downsiders

The Downsiders were Chico, California’s Nirvana and Sonic Youth all rolled into one. The band, started by San Francisco musician Cole Marquis (vocals/guitar) also included Chris Cloward (vocals/bass), Jeff Tracy (guitar) and Keith Foust (drums).

Live, their twisted brand of garage rock, a mélange of psychedelia and folk-punk combined with sheer garage energy proved popular with just about everyone:

punkers, alterna-kids, hippies, frat dudes and sorority chicks

but their popularity wasn’t limited to Chico, as several successful cross-country tours proved. A talented band, had they stayed together another year or two they might have

risen to the top of the Sub Pop sparked underground explosion.
