Pete Heimbold and Chad Urmston started a band called Hermit Thrush in 1995. Chad played every year for about 100 students at the Halfway Point in New York. Pete did the same thing, so Chad heard his music and liked it. They met each other and began zu jam.
They recorded a little demo tape with 4 songs on it. 3 of these songs are also on other Dispatch albums in a better recording quality. Sadly not the song Sister, which is really a great song.
