Punk rock revivalists in style, Portland’s GoodYear have been in a state of perpetual change since they officially formed in the spring of 2003. Initially the teenage fantasy of high school friends Michael Schuster and Jonathan Harn, GoodYear finally became a reality with the addition of friends and former co-workers Aaron Mattern and Mike Iannantuano. Joined by another high school friend on drums, the four recorded a twelve song demo that summer which highlighted Schuster’s poetically positive lyrics and often manic delivery with Iannantuano and Harn sharing guitar duties and Mattern on bass.
The group then began the search for a full time drummer, though after several frustrating months, Mattern announced that the search was off and that he would just learn to play the drums himself. Iannantuano then shifted from guitar to bass and they began practicing. A lot. After months of working together in their basement, they began gigging and shortly thereafter released an EP, 2004’s ‘…In Under Ten Minutes’. In the spirit of experimentation, the band enlisted help from another old friend, local indie songwriter and pianist Bryan Free, to polish off the EP with some clever keyboard arrangements.
Invigorated by the depth of sound the keys provided on the EP, GoodYear sought to add a keyboard player to the band. They didn’t have to look to far when they ran into Theo Brown, another musician friend, at a bar one evening. Theo had recently become available after having played keyboards in the futuristic dance band Euromotion, and was soon asked to become a permanent member of GoodYear.
Now officially a five piece band as of November 2005, GoodYear has never sounded better! Their unique blend of breakneck rhythms, ska-influenced staccato guitars, bouncy basslines and warm keyboard funk all serve as the catalyst for lyricist Mike Schuster’s apparent on stage self-exorcism. Their fun, often funny and always high energy rock shows bring to mind a more hopeful time of when, as Northwest author and rock enthusiast Matt Love fondly put it “The Clash met malt liquor and young people believed in change”.
