The And/Ors are composed of music industry veterans: four music enthusiasts who came together from previous indie rock bands of the late '90s.
Interstate Ten's Daniel Black was known for abrasive yet poetic lyrical imagery and together he and Thee Psychic Hearts' Lane Miller (guitar) and Crash Worship's Chris Wassel (drums) were a trio searching for the right melodies, for their rough edgings weren't totally capturing the band's overall wants to follow the likes of the Replacements and Big Star. Emo songstress Arabella Harrison, formerly of Jejune, stepped in with her thunderous bass and delicate vocals to make the And/Ors a complete four-piece. Their debut, Will Self-Destruct, was issued on Better Looking Records in early 2001 and a tour with Death Cab for Cutie followed that February. ~ MacKenzie Wilson, Rovi
