United State of Electronica on Apple Music

United State of Electronica

United State of Electronica formed around 2002 in Seattle, mainly from members of local combo Wonderful. Unlike that group's tightly wound pop confections, USE hit upon a cocktail of Andrew W.K.'s needle-burying intensity and the loping party funk of Daft Punk. Wonderful alums Noah Weaver (keyboards/vocoder), Peter Sali (guitar/vocals), Jason Holstrom (guitar/vocals), and Jon e. Rock (drums/vocals) were joined by bassist Derek Chan and dancers/backup singers Amanda Okonek and Carly Nicklaus, and USE made an immediate splash on the Seattle club scene with its energetic live take on a traditionally electronic music. Summer 2003 saw the issue of the band's vinyl debut on New York indie B-Side; the three-song 12" featured remixes by Bobby Karate and DJ Tripp. ~ Johnny Loftus
