Bio

From Reax Magazine, 8/29/06:

"Watch Me Disappear are veterans to the Orlando music scene. For over a decade, members contributed their unconventional, but innovative indie rock influences to bands like Backhand, Coriolis, Gabriel, Florida Arson Project, Song of Kerman and even the Central High School Marching Band. Mike Lothrop (drums), Keith Mercer (guitar, vocals), and Melissa Reeves (bass) began the band as a three piece, but Shawn McNulty (vocals, trumpet) recently completed the lineup. WMD are now moving full speed ahead with new attitudes toward playing music, a new singer and a new release on Orlando’s own Post Records.

REAX: With so much history playing music, does WMD have a primary songwriter or is it a collaborative effort?

ML: We all have an equal voice in the band. There’s never an idea pitched that isn’t tried.

KM: It’s a difficult, but rewarding way to run a band. One rule we have is that we never write a finished song. It’s always evolving.

REAX: What bands influence your eclectic sound?

ML: Jawbox is a band that kind of opened our eyes.

KM: Fugazi and Quicksand.

ML: We try to make it so that no two songs sound alike. We have the same intensity as some bands, but our songs vary, making it hard to label.

REAX: Post Records just released “In The Biblical Sense.” Describe recording and Post Records’ involvement.

ML: The final product, for our first release, is definitely what we were looking to do. The process took over a year and we recorded at four different places.

KM: Chris Cucci (Post Records) has been really helpful promoting us. He loves music. He doesn’t have to do it, he just does it because he loves it.

REAX: What makes WMD different from past projects?

KM: Right before the band, to some point, we had all stopped playing. Envisioning the end of playing music really made us enjoy doing it a lot more.

MR: I didn’t realize how much I missed it. In some way, it keeps me a little saner.

ML: I think that goes for all of us.

SM: One of the great things about this band is that it’s all about the rock and that’s perfectly fine with me.

KM: We like to do different things, try every color on the palette. In the end, we’re a rock band, and that’s what we like to do."
