Notes about the Skalars: Will Horton & Jessica Butler, and I believe Issac Green, Ethan D'Ercole and Evan Shaw all went to Washington University in St. Louis, around 1991-1995. Will majored in illustration, definitely doing the cover for Skoolin' With the Skalars. Made some extremely odd, strange, and very appealing artwork, including a remarkable portfolio case made of an old suitcase & fake fur. He also "never played bass before playing with the Skalars" and "wanted to join the band, so I learned how to play bass as I went". Jessica was quite into the local music scene before going to Washington University. For a time, all of them worked in the same place, a bakery, while working on their music.
