Concubine Forming


The band was formed in 1999 by singer/guitarist Eric Witz, guitarist Mike Hart, and bassist Ed Lover. Their name was a combination of song titles from two of their influences, Butthole Surfers and The Germs. They soon self-released an EP, Rape. Their abrasive sound and use of a drum machine drew inevitable comparisons to Big Black, much to the chagrin of the band who would never be able to shake the comparisons during the rest of their time together.

The band was formed in 1999 by singer/guitarist Eric Witz, guitarist Mike Hart, and bassist Ed Lover. Their name was a combination of song titles from two of their influences, Butthole Surfers and The Germs. They soon self-released an EP, Rape. Their abrasive sound and use of a drum machine drew inevitable comparisons to Big Black, much to the chagrin of the band who would never be able to shake the comparisons during the rest of their time together. Concubine Forming soon signed to Big Neck Records and released a 7" entitled Stiff in 2002.

The record was extremely popular in their hometown, and the lead track "Yo Mama" became a concert highlight. The band's live performances (and Eric's penchance to do potentially dangerous stunts like backflips while playing guitar, in particular) garnered them a sizeable following. But the band's rising star was temporarily halted with the departure of Ed Lover. After a lengthy search, they settled on Tracy Volker as a replacement. Shortly after, they entered the studio to record their full length debut, The Guilt Will Kill. The album, produced by members of The Lost Sounds, was released in 2004 on Big Neck.

It was warmly embraced by fans and critics alike. A cover of Billy Squier's "The Stroke" was included as a hidden track. Concubine Forming then shocked everyone by bringing former Sera Eclipsed drummer Jason into the fold. The addition of a drummer gave the music a more organic feel, and most fans agreed that the band sounded better than ever. Unfortunately, just as they were poised to conquer the music world, Jason accepted an offer to join up and coming recording artists Longwave. Rather than attempt to recapture the magic with a new drummer, the band decided to call it quits, playing their final show on January 25, 2005.

Following the dissolution of Concubine Forming, Mike went on to join The Trailerpark Tornados and The Next Syphilis; Tracy joined The Blowtops; and Eric grew a beard, prompting a bizarre in-joke among the Buffalo punk scene, best exemplified by the line "Where did it come from? What's it doing it here? Is it something that I should fear?" from the song "Eric's Beard" by The Next Syphilis. Read more on Last.fm.
