Let's Make Mixtapes

Keeping your childhood pop icons alive…even the ones you thought were dead.

The year was 1994. If you follow my blog (thanks, mom and that insomniac in Boise), then you know this was a big year for me in music.

Among the phenomenal bands I would discover, thanks to my local college rock radio station, was Silverchair.

The Australian trio formed in 1992 and released their debut album, Frogstomp, in 1995 (if I’m doing my math correctly, lead singer Daniel Johns was 16.) Their first single, “Tomorrow,” would be a hit in their home country and here in the U.S., reaching number 1 on both the Modern Rock and Mainstream Rock charts. It would also reach number 1 in my heart and add to that undiscovered, grunge side of my musical persona.
