Formed in 2011, Psychedelic coldwave rockers Barbarian released their first music the following year, along with a video for their song “Chromatose Yellow.” In January 2013, they played a month-long Monday night residency at the Soda Bar.
Guitarist Seton Edgerton and drummer Dan Nichols formed a new psychedelic-folk-synthpop band in 2016 called Well Well Well. Their debut What Do We Have Here? was recorded at Rarefied Recording and Electric Orange Studio, engineered by their fellow Barbarian Jon Greene (of Los Platanos, Lowlands, and Plateaus, also a longtime soundman at area clubs), mixed by Ben Moore, and mastered by Dave Gardner at Infrasonic Sound.
Jon Greene passed away November 8, 2016, at the age of 35.
