Samuel was a band from state college, pennsylvania. They were active in the mid-1990's, releasing two 7" ep's (self titled and lives of insects) on the label art monk construction. The band also released a split 7" with texas is the reason on the then brittish label simba. Samuel definitely played among the crowd of mid-90's 'post hardcore' or 'emo' bands. However, their sound probably owed as much to more straight forward 'indie rock' as it did to any of the member's hardcore roots.
The lives of insects ep was released on a cdep with two additional songs. (Last.fm)

Polaris began in the autumn of 1993 in the Hyde Park area of Leeds. Founding members were Neil, Ilan, Andy and Johnny. Ilan left in 1998 and Joe took his place.
Polaris played their first proper gig at the Caribbean Club in Preston on March 17th 1994.
A split single with fellow Hyde Park band Baby Harp Seal was released in December 1994 on Kwyjibo records. The first album 'Belated' was released on Common Cause records in 1998. Other songs have appeared on various compilations, a full discography is below.
Polaris's second album on Gringo records has just been released and can be ordered directly from gringorecords using the magic buttons at the bottom of the page, or may be obtained from band members directly, possibly at a lower cost depending on the mood of the vendor.
Through their first album 'Belated', many appearances on splits and compilations and the reputation garnered from their infrequent but incendiary live shows, Polaris are legends to those in the know. To those that aren't: where have you been?
Their new self-titled album sees Polaris perfectly capture their unique command of the rolling rhythm and irresistible bassline. But the key is the teetering balance between the uplifting and the deeply sinister that has been a constant in all their work over these past 13 years. For every joyous moment of bright melody there is a flipside of dark, resonant, foreboding heaviosity. Their skill is to perfectly employ the two contrasting sides to create a unique and harmonious whole. Polaris are set to burst out of the box marked 'Best Kept Secret'. Make sure you're around to witness it. (gringo records)

Pulling influences from the rock of Superchunk and Versus, the pop of Velocity Girl and the vocal beauty of Ida, Pohgoh remains, to this day, the quintessential female-fronted indie-rock band from “Emo’s” hey-day.
February 1994, Kobi, Matt and Brad form Pohgoh, with Keith joining on drums later in the Spring. They’re young, they’re having fun, they do two tours of the Eastern U.S. and release 3 records (all singles). Each set contains great hooks, lots of dancing and plenty of show ending noise. In November 1995, Kobi decides to leave for personal reasons.
January 1996, the boys recruit Susie, from Tampa’s Stitch. They’re still young, they’re still having fun, and they do one six week tour of the Eastern U.S., release 2 singles (one w/ our friends, Braid!), a full length and a song on Volume 1 of the “Emo Diaries” series. Each set contains lots of guitar, more great hooks, and still plenty of show ending noise.
Pohgoh bids farewell in a tear-filled final show on 2/21/98.
“All Along” is a 19 song discography containing every song ever released by the band during their 4 year career (1994-1998). Completely Re-Mastered, this disc includes Friend X from Volume 1 of the popular “Emo Diaries” series, the entire “In Memory of Bab” full length, Goodnight, Sweetheart from their split 7” with Braid, early rare releases featuring original vocalist Kobi and more!
UPDATE: In October of 2001, Susie was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. She asks that you take the time to visit www.nmss.org.
On December 25, 2005, Pohgoh reunited for a one-night-only performance (along with other long-defunct Tampa greats Tomorrow, My Own America and Scrog) raising money to benefit the local chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

After quite a wait, the album is out. Of course, as these things go, Pohgoh have now been broken up for about a year or so, but that doesn't stop the album from being amazing and wonderful. Fantastic melodies grace indie/emo pop with strong, sweet, memorable female vocals. Ten great songs -- the kind that give you chills -- that are filled with subtly catchy guitar interplay, honest emotions, great hooks, and a nostalgic aire of melancholy.
Pohgoh stood out as one of Florida's best bands, and this shows exactly why. They will be missed, but at least we have this. Highly recommended. Outback Entertainment Group, P.O. Box 780132, Orlando, FL 32828

Project Kate es, como dice su nombre, un proyecto paralelo de Kate Reddy, miembro de 108, junto con músicos de reconocidas bandas, como Sergio Vega y Alan Cage, ambos pertenecientes en ese entonces a Quicksand (bajo y batería, respectivamente). En un segundo plano, pero igualmente meritorio, podemos encontrar la participación de otros artistas, como Norman Arenas y Garret Klahn, ambos miembros de Texas is the Reason. También aportan John Kriksciun (a la batería) e Ida Pearle (violín).
La vida de este grupo es bastante corta, y claro, si luego de muchos años de anonimato y de volver a grabar las canciones, el único disco fue lanzado con el nombre de "The Way Birds Fly". Básicamente se trata de un proyecto en el cual Kate canaliza sus sentimientos e ideas en el período de embarazo de su bebé Kaulini Reddy.
El disco, dentro de su sencillez, trae mucha tranquilidad e irradia la felicidad que Kate sentía en aquellos momentos. Las suaves y dulces melodías, sumadas al valor extra que tiene este registro como rareza per sé, hacen que este lanzamiento sea muy apreciado por los fans.
Project Kate was a short-lived, New York-based project that centered around Kate Reddy, one-time guitarist for Hare Krishna-inspired hardcore band 108, that included many East Coast hardcore scene notables. Project Kate songs were acoustically driven, laid-back ballads expressing Reddy’s private thoughts on her parents, marriage, spirituality, and love. Reddy recorded the album while eight months pregnant — and the love, warmth, and affection she felt for her soon-to-be expanding family is evident throughout the simple, yet heartfelt, recordings. Reddy began playing acoustic guitar with her friend Shannon in Shannon’s dad’s basement in 1987. But the Project Kate concept never formally materialized until 1991, when she began jamming with the then-Quicksand rhythm section of drummer Alan Cage and bassist Sergio Vega, who himself would go on to release solo material in 2000. They jokingly referred to what they were doing as “Kate” as they goofed around in a basement rehearsal space. The trio recorded three songs for free in July 1991 at Centerfield Studio. That fall, Reddy recorded a song called “California” by herself at the same place. Around this time, Quicksand signed to a major label and began touring and recording with far more regularity, so Project Kate fell apart. Reddy joined the Hare Krishna organization and eventually the band 108, married Equal Vision Records owner Steve Reddy, and began running the label with him. The two of them decided they wanted to release the Project Kate demo, but it was lost. Original engineer Mike Maineiri would later find the tape behind a dresser during a move, but before that happened, Kate Reddy had already assembled a new version of Project Kate and re-recorded three of the original songs, along with five new ones, in December of 1995 and January of 1996. These recordings, made with producer Ray Martin, surfaced as the album …The Way Birds Fly in 1996. the album carries a dedication to newborn baby Kaulini Reddy in the liner notes. The other musicians involved included then-Texas Is the Reason/later New End Original guitarist Norman Arenas (on the track “Simon Says”), bassist Vega, drummer John K., and violin player Ida Pearle. Texas Is the Reason/New Rising Sons frontman Garret Klahn was also involved to some degree.
