Index-for-potential-suicide



July 1998-January 2000
Index for Potential Suicide was formed in the summer of 1998 in Charleston, SC by Christopher Ashley of the noise/hardcore band Murder Weapon and Brian Cooper, Robert Findlater and Frank Whiteside of Intentional Resentment. The four’s love for noise and experimental music was the foundation for the band’s early material. As an experimental band with drum machines, samplers, synths, trumpet, etc. the band played shows and cleared rooms with Hail Mary, Milemarker, etc. and recorded a demo called “This Week’s Boycott.
” The band then shifted to a more traditional “rock” line-up added Shawn Williams of Prevail on bass and recorded the “s/t” 7” after 3 practices, with Williams learning most of the basslines the morning of the record session. Two 7”s, a full length CD, LP, a compilation appearance, 2 tours, a cancelled tour and a broken down van saw the end of Index for Potential Suicide.
Members went on to form or play in Red Herring, The Avenging Disco Godfathers of Soul, The Disease and countless others.
