Smooch (3 Albums, 19 Tracks)
- Jen Barnhard - vocals

- Companion Trio
4 teenagers (all around 16-17 years of age) living in Maryland, who released their angst and creativity with a band called SMOOCH.
Their first gig was with Bikini Kill and Royal Trux at the Beta-Punk warehouse. From there, they would continue to play with the DC Punk bands but also continually stick out like a sore thumb.
Smooch existed for a little over one year between 1992-1993.
College was one of the reasons for the downfall of the band, but it lead most of them further into the realms of the musical web they continue to spin.
Josh Blair would later join WW3 with Jerry Lim & Chuck Bettis (check the instrumental Smooch recordings to see the lineage & logic of this), while later Blair would join Orthrelm, Jerry would start Companion Trio, and Chuck would front the Meta-matics.
The rest is history...
