Organic Mechanic was a band founded by long-time friend of Weezer, Pat Finn, around 2000.

Overview

Finn had previously been a part of the pre-Weezer bands 60 Wrong Sausages and Bush, both of which recorded demos but never released any official music. Around 2000, he formed his own band in Portland, Oregon called "Organic Mechanic". It included drummer Talbott Guthrie, saxophonist Joe Cunningham (who would later release a solo album titled Dad Eye), and bassist Norm Buccola. Before the band's lineup was finalized, Pat Wilson acted as a temporary drummer, playing in demos recorded in early 1999.[1] The band performed as an opening act for a number of Weezer shows in 2000 and was mentioned in multiple Karl's Corner updates.

The band released their first (and only) album, Organic Mechanic, in 2001. It was the first project to be released through Finn and Karl Koch's DIY record label, Amorphous Records. It saw a CD release, available by mail-order through the Amorphous Records website, as well as through the online music distribution service CD Baby and in select record stores around Portland.[2]

Multiple demos were recorded for a possible second album. One, titled "The Hippie Dance" and recorded in Fall 2002, was made available for download on the Amorphous Records website. However, a second album would never materialize.

By March 2004, the Organic Mechanic page on Amorphous Records stated that Finn was recording new material for a non-Organic Mechanic project with Guthrie, and in February 2009 an update was added claiming that Finn and Guthrie were ready to launch the new band.[3] No further updates were made to the page, and it is unknown what became of the project.
