Thoughtstreams existed from 1999 to 2001. It started with Alex and myself. We recruited James to play bass. That was the lineup on the split with Dysrhythmia.

James went to college and was replaced with Franke. We did another recording that was never really "officially" released.

All the recorded Thoughtstreams material is gathered at the link below. It is entitled "Gnu Metal".


Alex Nagle - guitar, lead guitar, drum programming
Forbes Graham - trumpet, guitar, synthesizer, drum programming
James Shaver - bass
Franke Vogl - bass
