Samiam is a band from Berkeley, California formed in late 1988 after the breakup of the Gilman Street club mainstay Isocracy. Their first show was an unlikely pairing in January 1989 with peace punks Christ on Parade that illustrated. The band has released over a half dozen independent records through New Red Archives, No Idea and Hopeless Records in the US and Burning Heart/ Epitaph in Europe. In the mid-90s, the band had two releases on a major labels, Atlantic Records in 1994 and Ignition/Tommy Boy in 1997. This path achieved modest mainstream success; a video for Capsized gained a lot of airplay on MTV, they performed on the Jon Stewart Show in 1994 and the single, "She Found You" garnered considerable radio play in 1998. The band toured extensively throughout Europe, North and South America, Australia and Japan with the likes of Bad Religion, Green Day, The Toadies, Sense Field, Blink 182 and Millencolin.
