Severe Tire Damage in The Washington Post
"Geek bands are hardly indigenous to the Washington area. Silicon Valley has a loose network of garage musicians and entrepreneurs, techies craving an after-hours release."
"Unlike many of their companies, few of these band members ever gained notice beyond their garages, however. One cult exception is the band Severe Tire Damage, which was recently dubbed "the unofficial house band of cyberspace" and, according to the San Jose Mercury News, was the first rock band to broadcast live music and video on the Internet three years ago, beating the Rolling Stones by 20 minutes."
