The First Internet Band

STD...in the flesh!
Kids, it was 1994.
Desert Storm was still fresh on everybody's minds.
The fun Clinton was running the show.
Nirvana was dead and the Spice Girls were just beginning to peek their vacant heads over the horizon.
Oh, and the internet -- most of us were just starting to test out the proverbial e-waters with our digital toes (see what I did there) and just a select few of us were regularly dabbling with a kind of black magic called "email."
Also some guy named Jeff founded a book reselling outfit called Amazon, of all things, but nobody really cared.
Despite the fragile, house-of-cards state of the web at the time, a handful of hippy-engineers from California decided to see just how far they could push this fledgling technology by promoting an event that was likely the first use of the internet to broadcast a live rock-band performance, even though the Rolling Stones would actually do the same thing immediately following it.
Check out the short vid below for a bit of old-school schooling about Severe Tire Damage, the first internet rock-band. Party on, Garth!
