Chicago's Mezodigm formed in 1998 with guitarist/singer Chris Estrada and drummer Andy Martin. Through a series of drinking, drugs, women and changes within the band, Mezodigm managed to record some material. By the time the With a Bullet EP was released in 1999, guitarist John Akred and bassist Ben Harbert were in the band. Changes continued to plague their musical world. Martin left Mezodigm for Los Angeles, eventually hooking up with Harbert 2000 to form a garage-pop band. Scott Moore was brought in to replace Martin and Tom Hester stepped in for Harbert. The studio full-length Anchor Watt & the Weekend Warriors appeared in early 2002, but Moore took off. East coast native Steve Treichel, formerly of D.C. acts Aerialist and Pines of Nowhere, was added to the line-up, but the constantly revolving membership eventually took its toll and Mezodigm disbanded in August, 2003.
