June began in August of 1992 in Chapel Hill, NC, and ended
in roughly August of 1996. It was quite a ride in the meantime.
Beautiful close harmonies, intricate guitar lines and provocative
structures; the puzzle pieces of the June sound. They built
up tension through the intertwining vocals and guitars, gradually
exploding in a burst of energy. "All of Me" worked quite well
in a live setting, as Kat and Tricia increased the intensity
of their vocal acrobatics through each pass of the chorus. Not
too shabby on this recorded version either. "Genius" had a trademark
wound-coil intensity that led all manner of labels to their
door. The band eventually signed with Beggar's Banquet and released
the album I Am Beautiful (with a re-recorded version
of "Genius" and re-recordings of some of their other earlier
songs), only to split shortly thereafter.
Both of these tracks were produced by Mitch Easter.
You can find June members in a variety of places:
Drummer John Howie (formerly of the band Finger), who joined
after the recording of the Squealer single, now strums and croons
for $2 Pistols, who have a couple of excellent records on the
Scrimshaw label. Bassist Andy Magowan is still in Chapel Hill
and continues to play in a variety of bands there. Last we heard,
John Price was in Austin, Matt was in Maine, Tricia in England,
and Kat in Los Angeles.
