COMMENTS

Spore was formed in 1997 by John Hatterman on bass, Bruce Swink on guitar, and Joel Ekman on drums. Jim Corigliano was added on vocals a short time later. Joel left soon after and was replaced by Jay Corigliano on drums. Spore played a couple of shows before Bruce left to join Deadfront. Spore replaced Bruce with Max Hudson who had recently been with Deadfront as a founding member.

After spending a few months writing material, Spore played one more gig in northern Iowa during a blizzard wearing only banana hammocks and midway through changed the name to Heroic Dose.

There are very few known recordings.

It's said that Spore went on to become Heroic Dose after Bruce Swink left. Bruce says: "Deadfront kicked out their guitar player, and asked me to join... then that guitar player filled my spot and Spore became Heroic Dose."
