Music Fremont/Ballard

A long time ago in a place called Ellensburg, WA, Van Conner and his brother Gary Lee, Mark Lanegan and Mark Pickerel formed a band called “Screaming Trees”. They recorded a cassette tape, bought a van for one thousand dollars and headed out on the road on a roller coaster ride that would take them to the outer reaches of the universe. This journey helped to create music that inspired not only the indie music scene in the late 80s in America and Europe but carried on to bring about the popular music explosion of the Northwest “Grunge” scene.
