My stake in emo
This is the part about my involvement in emo. In 1999, I,
Anthony LaFerrera, played bass in a band called Three Rivers
in my hometown of Boynton Beach, FL, just prior to moving to
Gainesville to attend UF. Our style was actually a hybrid of metal
and emo, and none of us except the guitar player had ever played in
an emo band before. It was a lot of fun. I have provided a picture
of us near the end of our year-long venture. We started as a
five-piece but eventually reduced to a three piece toward the end.
In the picture from left to right is Brandon, the drummer, myself
and Fro, the guitarist. The mp3 I included is from when we first
got together as a five piece. I made this mp3 from a song we
recorded on a household cassette deck in our warehouse, so it
doesn't sound great. It gives you the idea of what we were doing,
and it sounds better than the multi-track recordings we did toward
the end of our entourage. Additional members in this recording are
Mark Young on guitar and Billy Sheehan on vocals.
