Album "The Art of Drowning" (2000)


Established in 1991 in Ukiah, California, AFI, or also known as A Fire Inside, initially was formed by high school students named Davey Havok, Vic Chalker, and Mark Stopholese as an alternative option to overcome boredom in the small town between their skateboard sessions. Feeling the need of a drummer, Mark then asked another friend of him, Adam Carson to join in, making the line-up into a quartet with Davey taking the vocalist job plus Vic handling the guitar, while Mark himself assuming the bass position. Sadly, the formation only lasted for about nine months when Vic shockingly decided to walk out the troupe due to his diminishing interest in the project. Yet, the rest of the members thankfully were quick to find his replacement in Geoff Kresge. It was under the guy's indie label of Key Lime Pie Records that the group finally was able to see the materialization of their first work in 1993, an EP entitled "Dork" which they made alongside fellow Ukiah band, Loose Change.
