lanceH, who can be accused of master minding this foray into sound, spread grooves recorded in the windy city to potential drummers after relocating to the northwest. soon captivating the strong armed mad man hitting styles of sean. several trips to local pawn shops later, and drums that had been sold to pay off gambling debts and grocery bills were now back in the proper hands. now with a full-on line up, estocar began to play into the outer reaches of the northwest from their home base in seattle. while venturing out to such places as bellingham, boise, portland, eugene, olympia, san francisco, los angeles, etc., a tight knit sound began to boil. estocar took that energy into telephone studios in san francisco, and estocar continues to use a fine tuned musical prowess to expand their sound riot throughout the west coast and beyond. trashing stages, spreading rumors and good will, sleeping on floors and couches of the faithful, visiting motel and hotel. laying down a cohesive ride through such schools of thought as shifty brain rock, surf 'n' sand grooves, art noise asides, angular tempos, 60s era confusions, and literary punk, all with a steady hand on the wheel and a lead foot on the gas pedal.
