Jason Martin had played keyboards and wrote several songs while playing with his older brother's band, Dancehouse Children, but then formed Starflyer 59 in 1993 to create his own warped pop akin to My Bloody Valentine and the British shoegazing movement of the early '90s. Since Martin writes every song, produces and plays most instruments on the handful of full-length albums and EPs he's released, there's no need for a conventional lineup. He simply recruits live players for the many tours which Starflyer has undertaken.
