I think that the idea for Eulcid came about in 1996 when my friend Travis suggested that we play some music. My band splintered and his band piebald had been playing shows together here and there for several years at that point. It seemed like a good idea, but it took until the summer of 1997 to actually start to happen. We wrote the music to our first song on the evening before about 15 of our circle of friends were about to move to Boston from the Merrimack Valley. It was called "five months, ok" and would later appear on our demo.
