Artist Biography by

Overpass grew out of the California punk band Slovenly, which recorded for the seminal SST label in the 1980s. When Slovenly recorded its last album in 1992, three members -- guitarist and singer Tom Watson, bassist Scott Ziegler, and ex-Saccharine Trust drummer Rob Holzman -- decided to attempt a more cohesive, interactive approach to writing music as a group. The group's self-titled debut was released on SST subsidiary New Alliance, with a follow-up, Manhattan (Beach), completed in 1994.
