764-HERO Band

764-HERO is the number you call in the greater Seattle, Washington area to report a HOV lane violator. It’s also the name of a 1990s indie rock band from that area.

The group formed in 1995 with members John Atkins and Polly Johnson. By 1998, the duo had expanded to include James Bertram, who was replaced by Robin Peringer in 2000. The group was active until 2002 with brief reunions in 2012 and 2016.

During their tenure, 764-HERO released 4 studio LPs as well as a handful of singles and EPs. Of note was Whenever You See Fit, a 1998 split 12-inch with frequent tour-mates Modest Mouse.

The split digital/vinyl show featured new tracks from Sleeping Bag, The Babies, Sweater Girls, Gospel Claws, Suturee and Thunder Power. We also featured a few favorites since the year 2000 with tracks by The Anniversary, Tvärvägen and The Scotland Yard Gospel Choir.
