1980 to 2010
http://strangeroutine.com From his early days in the Pacific Northwest punk outfit Snakepit, his longtime collaborations with Mark Lanegan, his stint in Dinosaur Jr., to his most recent outing with Caustic Resin, Mike Johnson has cemented himself as venerable player in the field of rock music. Mike Johnson was born in Grants Pass, Oregon in 1965. After taking the ubiquitous "student loan to University" way out of small-town hell, he joined the Eugene band Snakepit in 1984. Two self-released cassettes, two 45s, and countless shows later the college rockers threw in the decidedly stinky towel in 1989.
