Quasi was formed in Portland OR in '93 by Sam Coomes & Janet Weiss. Their first album was self released in '95. They released three albums between '97 & '99 on Up Records. They moved to Touch & Go Records in '01 & have released three albums with them thus far, & additionally T&G reissued the first album. Quasi albums are licenced by Domino Records in Europe & P-Vine Records in Japan. Throughout this time they have also toured &/or recorded either individually or collectively with Sleater-Kinney, Elliott Smith, Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks, Built to Spill, Bright Eyes, Heatmiser, the Go Betweens, Pink Mountain, Blues Goblins,The Takeovers, Jandek, numerous other less recognizeable names. Prior to to Quasi, SC was in the San Francisco band Donner Party (c.'83-'88) & both SC & JW were in the Portland power trio Motorgoat (c.'90-'92). Joanna Bolme (Jicks, The Minders, Calamity Jane) joined the band in c.'06. In late 2011 Quasi went back to being a two-piece, Sam and Janet. Look for a new record sometime in the future.
