We came together in October of 1995. Eric and Joe were playing in Woodrot, a Death Metal band out of Port Orchard. I was playing guitar and singing as The Giggles in the band Head, the Street Rock and Roll outfit from Seattle. Conversation between the three of us turned to getting together to jam. Joe and Eric brought some riffs, I bought a drumset and brought the band name. Golden Pig Electric Blues Band was born.
