The original post here is an excellent description of Lync, so I'll just add that Lync spawned a fine cover band
from the East Bay
area of Asian kids called Chync, featuring George Chen of Zum!
fanzine and records.
Also, James Bertram of Lync went on to play in Red Stars Theory, who released several solid records. That band also includes Jeremiah Green of Modest Mouse fame, and his drumming with RST is as solid as all his other work.
