Founded by drummer Johnny Graziadei in a typically dark and dreary Seattle basement a fewyears ago, KANDI CODED released their first album “Sucrose Fixation” on their own label DirtySock. This got them a local following and earned them a spot on last year’s Warped tour, aswell as bringing them to the attention of local studio guru/grunge godfather
Jack Endino (producer of Nirvana, Hot Hot Heat, High On Fire, etc).While working in the studio with Endino on the band’s second album, “Time Wasted Is NotWasted Time”, the band’s lead guitarist quit, leaving the remaining members to talk Endino intocutting a guitar solo, then another one, and then another. Soon Jack agreed to play a fewshows, and finally ended up joining. “What can I say…I was drafted. says Endino.
KANDI CODED features founder Johnny Graziadei on drums and vocals, Chris Hunter on bassand vocals, longtime snowboard legend and graphic artist Jamie Lynn on guitar and leadvocals, along with Endino himself, who is quite pleased to be playing guitar in a band in whichsomeone ELSE gets called a “legend” all the time.
KANDI CODED’s new album “Time Wasted Is Not Wasted Time” is available now fromVolcom Entertainment.
