Abernathy was a band that existed from October 2004 until February 2006. The band originally featured Jim Connolly (formerly of Mechanical Sharkhead, the Outfielders, the Hymen Maneuver and Late) on guitar and vocals, Kristy Murnane on bass and backing vocals and Abram Taber (formerly of Paraffin Section) on drums and backing vocals. In June 2005, the band added Matt Ozelius on second guitar and backing vocals. The band never recorded a proper demo or album and their only full band recording is taken from their July 25, 2005 performance on WUML's Live from the Fallout Shelter.
Despite having a lack of recorded output, Abernathy did manage to win OUtlET Magazine's 2005 Valence Award for Best Song for O Mon Dieu. Jim and Matt rejoined to form Aloha Sarcophagus in 2009 following the demise of Matt's band Gambolling Lamb. Abe went on to play bass for the Slurred Murrays, a reformed Paraffin Section and the Musical Theatre as well as drums for Pyotr and Verre. Kristy still plays bass and is looking for the right group of people to form a band with. Abernathy reformed on April 24, 2009 to perform "O Mon Dieu" at their friend Matt Studivan's birthday show at Friendly Square.
