Biografia

The Librarians were a power pop band from Berkeley, California who formed in 1999 by Damon Larson and Ryan Gan. They released one album, The Pathetic Aesthetic, in 2002, which received 4/5 stars from Allmusic.
The group was famous mostly for their raucous live act:

But (Ryan) Gan, the anti-frontperson frontperson of the Librarians, isn’t even fazed. Though on the record, Gan’s job is limited to backup vocals and tambourine for vocalist-guitarist Damon Larson, he explodes into his full potential onstage with spastic tambourine beating and poster-worthy one-hand-on-the-hip-the-other-thrust-skyward poses. His performance is truly horrifying in its cheesiness, and yet it’s unnervingly mesmerizing. It’s a kind of innocence-lost scenario: everyone reaches the same guilty conclusion, “Christ, why don’t more bands do this?”

Interestingly enough, Ryan Gan received his Master’s in Library and Information Science in 2006 and is now employed as a librarian in Orange, California. Prior to this and the formation of the band, Gan played the euphonium at Magnolia High School in Anaheim, California between 1990 and 1994. Gan has since picked up the euphonium again and is playing in a band. Since leaving the Librarians, Damon Larson has continued his musical career. His newest band, the Paranoids, is a fixture on the San Francisco music scene.

    Curiouser and curiouser. I don't remember when/how I ended up with 'Pathetic Aesthetic,' in my music collection, but I came here to see who The Librarians were since I've had them on frequent cycle lately. Now I learn they are (very) NOT the Major Label faux-lo-fi styly dudes I envisioned, but a 1999-2000ish East Bay house show band? I was at East Bay house shows back then, but am also certain I never heard of The Librarians til now. Not surprising, given the infinitely splintered Bay Area music scene--this was not my splinter. Funny that I'm drawn to the music now, though, and I'm happy to find myself a 'top listener' (albeit belatedly).

    There is a Brit band called the librarians, but I'd be surprised if they had any music released...
