Seaweed started out releasing material on their own Leopard Gecko imprint in 1989, before moving onto a vinyl single with K Records, signing to Sub Pop a few years later for their career building albums "Despised," "Weak," and "Four." Then Hollywood Records picked the band up in 1993 and released their largest album to date, 1995's "Spanaway," their bombastic major label offering. Lasting only 1 album on Hollywood, the band and label unhitched and Seaweed then moved back to the indies. Merge Records issued their final release in 1999, "Actions and Indications" turned into their swan song and the band split later the same year. Seaweed's decade of existence came to an end.
Seaweed's live show was impressive--they played their particular brand of post- Black Flag, Dischord-esque, Minneapolis-tinged rock (Okay, a hint of the mighty Grunge as well) with such zeal, they could have wrung their shirts into a cup after every show. By the time they decided to call it quits, Seaweed had seen about 300,000 faces, and rocked almost all of them.
