Lee’s Palace Presents
Let’s get some things out of the way. Why? is a band-three Cincinnati-bred gentlemen who’ve shared a whole lotta past together. Two of them are brothers. Yoni Wolf, who founded the project by his lonesome in 1998 is one of those (see also: clouddead, Greenthink, Reaching Quiet). The other is Josiah Wolf, who first started hitting the skins at their father’s synagogue during worship service.
They like being in a band together so don’t ask about it. Why?’s third fella is Doug McDiarmid, a high school friend born to French teachers, discovered by the Wolfs whilst playing guitar in a Steve Miller cover band. These men are handsome and meticulous, especially when they do ugly and unwieldy things with words and music.
