Possibly the most pretentiously named band since Four Non-Blondes, Seattle pop trio the Day I Fell Down make a quirky but accessible brand of alternative rock that isn't as oddball as they probably think it is, but has its own eclectic charms.

The Day I Fell Down formed in 1994 when Iowa native Robert Dan, a former voice and composition student enamored of classical music, decided to form a rock band. Texas-born bassist Bradley Hooper answered Dan's musicians wanted ad and the duo joined forces. Releasing a self-titled album in 1996, the pair gained some local notoriety and college radio airplay. Wanting a full-time drummer for their increasingly active live schedule, Dan and Hooper found Dalton Davis. Local legend Jack Endino, who had produced many seminal releases from Seattle's grunge era, signed on to produce the new trio's second album. 1998's Sweet to Be Strange is a little noisier, probably thanks to Endino, and has a peculiar reggae lilt in spots, probably thanks to former ska drummer Davis. Unfortunately, the album made little impact even locally and the Day I Fell Down apparently broke up.
