Algebra One
"Blacksburg Songs 95-99"

Ex Friends "Animal Needs"

Think of this collection as less of a discography and more of a documentation of what it was like to be in a band as a kid in the ‘90s, finding your way through different musical styles, playing shows with friends, and living in Blacksburg – a small college town in Southwestern Virginia.

Also note: staying in tune was never one of their core competencies.

Tyler Dickson – guitar, vocals
Shawn Boles – drums
Stew Monday – bass
Dave Kincaid – bass on tracks 24, 25
Charles Glover – guitar on tracks 18-23, 31, 32, 35-41
