If Nobody Knew
Conceived in the narrow aisles of used record stores and born in a dusty studio in San Rafael, California, if nobody knew is posessed by a trashcan indie soul and post-punk intensity. Their songs are trapped between the intellectual need to be melodic and mellow, and the instinctual urge to be spastic and strange. Like butterflies escaping a trainwreck, if nobody knew is it's own pretty accident. The four boys in the band grew up together in and around San Francisco. They moved, lived, and played together in LA under a different band name and garnered the attention of Major Label robots. It didn't take long to realize that Major Labels weren't the answer they sought. They briefly disbanded, moved back to SF and decided that If Nobody Knew they existed, they'd all be playing music anyway, thus, they formed. . . BON JOVI.
