Custom Floor is an underground indie rock band formed in 1991 by Garry Davis, Phil Esbenshade. and Miki Vuckovich. Although Garry and Phil were former pro skateboarders, Custom Floor was never a skate rock band, instead displaying a heavy Sonic Youth influence. After releasing their first 7" record on Goldenrod Records in late 1991, the band went on to play frequent live shows throughout Southern California in 1992-'93. The first Custom Floor LP Clear Day was released in December 1993 on their own Analog Sound Recordings label, and was supported with a full U.S. tour in Summer 1994 -- the second half of which was spent opening for fellow locals Drive Like Jehu.
After the orginial Custom Floor line-up fizzled out in late 1992, numerous other local musicians enjoyed brief stints in the band with leader Garry Davis in the mid-to-late '90s, including Tod Swank (bass), Brent Fellows (bass), Adam Willard of Rocket from the Crypt (drums), Michelle Slater (bass), Chris Squire (bass), Rafter Roberts (drums), and Matt Crane (drums). After releasing an experimental Custom Floor 7" called The Handsome Young Airforce Lieutenant with Adam Willard (aka Atom from Rocket from the Crypt) in 1995, Garry Davis teamed up with Matt Crane and Chris Squire to record the band's second full-length CD From a Body in 1997. After a hiatus of several years, Garry and Matt recorded the third full-length, A Distant Dull, in 2003.
