From Suicide King MySpace page:
Suicide King formed in NYC when 4way finally convinced Nick Marden to start a band with him. Shige joined soon after, without Shige there is no SK. He is our heartbeat. Scotty was enlisted during the making of their second cd, we kidnapped him as he walked off the plane at JFK once he decided to move back to Zoo York away from the wastelands of Ohio. 4way was the singer in SF's Bad Posture. 4way and Scott are focused (just barely) once you drag them away from their beloved pinball machine collections that have become heroin to them. Nick played bass for The Stimulators (he still does) Nick is the only stable one, I suppose somebody has got to do it. Shige came to NYC from Japan with his band The Hip Nips. Scotty was the lead guitarist for Blitzspeer. George is back for a second tour of insanity after leaving to go make actual money as a musician with Jay Mascis and then Evan Dando.
